Scotland Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 Stage 2


We undertook a broad consultation on the principles for the 2014 to 2020 SRDP in May 2013.  This second consultation builds on our initial proposals and takes account of the analysis and feedback we received.  It also takes account of the relevant aspects of the European Structural Funds 2014 - 2020 Programmes Consultation, latest information on regulations from Europe and on-going discussions with stakeholders.  The consultation document sets out our proposals on how we expect to use the European and domestic funds accessed through the SRDP, and how this will be aligned with other EU funds.  This includes an outline of the schemes we propose to run and an indication of the budget allocations for our priorities.  In addition we consider support and communications, particularly through the advisory service and Scottish Rural Network and how we will improve monitoring and evaluation.
