                   New Leader Approach Expression of Interest Form
             The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe Investing in Rural Areas


LEADER Project Reference Number:

The New LEADER Approach is aimed at communities and businesses in specific rural areas. In order
to be considered for support, all applicants must firstly complete this Expression of Interest Form. This
will enable the Local Action Group, under guidance from the LEADER Co-ordinator, to determine
whether or not your proposal is suitable for funding. Projects will need to demonstrate that they can
meet the aims of the Local Development Strategy, while also making a good overall business case.
For further information about these priorities, the eligible areas and activities please visit:
www.rdpenortheast.co.uk or speak to your LEADER Co-ordinator.
Each LEADER area has prepared a Local Development Strategy (LDS) that sets out how the
LAGs wish to deliver RDPE objectives in their area. The strategies are also available in electronic
format on the RDPE website.
The Expression of Interest is not an application for funding. Projects which meet the criteria will be
invited to the next stage, which will be the full Application Form. You will be required to provide more
detail on the Application Form about your idea. Only projects that can deliver RDPE themes will be
considered for support. (see page 4 for the list of themes)
It is very important that your Expression of Interest is succinct, stating exactly what it is you would like to
do. In the event that your idea is not suitable for LEADER funding, we will either try to work with you to
strengthen your proposal, if possible, or we will endeavour to identify an alternative source of support.

Please return your completed Expression of Interest Form to the relevant LEADER Co-ordinator (see
below). Further information on LEADER in the North East is available from www.rdpenortheast.co.uk or
