In 2012 a set of Working Groups were established with the purpose of developing the proposals for the SRDP 2014 - 2020. The papers for each of these working groups are archived and are available for viewing.
There have been two public consultations on the SRDP 2014 - 2020.
The Stage 1 consultation took place in May 2013 to gather views on the initial proposals for the SRDP 2014 - 2020. The analysis of responses for this consultation is available.
The Stage 2 consultation built on the original proposals, taking into account feedback from the first consultation and stakeholder engagement. It also included proposals on budgets, schemes, delivery mechanisms and communications. The analysis of responses for this consultation is available.
