What was the Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP) 2007 - 2013?

The SRDP 2007-13 addressed economic and social goals as well as supporting environmental measures. It was outcome-focused and primarily aimed at delivering a Greener Scotland whilst promoting a wealthier and fairer rural Scotland. It contributed to the Government's Healthier and Smarter objectives and helped to strengthen rural communities.

It brought together a wide range of support schemes including those covering farming, forestry and primary processing sectors, rural enterprise and business development, diversification and rural tourism. It supported and encouraged rural communities and delivered the LEADER initiative for local innovation in rural areas.

All schemes under the SRDP 2007 - 2013 are closed to new applicants, however information is still available to those with on-going contracts under the following schemes.
