Tadcaster & Rural CIC has been selected by Locality to be just one of 50 groups nationwide to participate in its new Community Economic Development programme. Our proposal – in a nutshell – is to work with our partners to produce and implement an Economic Development Plan aimed at enhancing the contribution of the local food and drink sector to the economic growth of Selby District.
Our objectives for the programme are:
1) To bring together policy makers, businesses, non-profit organisations and other stakeholders to develop and deliver an Action Plan for the development of the local food and drink sector.
2) To address deprivation through the improved availability of local food.
3) To increase public awareness regarding the link between local food, skills, well-being and the local economy.
You can read the final report of the project here. The work on implementing the report continues through 2016 with the partnership and updates will be posted here.
