Coastal Action Zone has been awarded Â£2m to support project applications for rural development through the LEADER (*) approach until 2013.CAZ LEADER RDPE funding is a European Union initiative delivered through Defra and emda. Lincolnshire County Council and East Lindsey District Council also contribute financially to the programme.
In 2007, Lincolnshire County Council worked with local residents and organisations to form a partnership now known as the Coastal Action Zone (CAZ) Local Action Group (LAG) to bid for funding from the East Midlands Development Agency.
The LAG developed a Local Development Strategy (LDS) and is now working to implement that strategy by instigating and supporting projects that may be eligible to apply for funding through the new LEADER Approach element of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).
The CAZ Local Action Group’s vision:
“Building a sustainable future through realising the natural assets of an undervalued coast”
