Rural Priorities Statistics

These pages show key statistics on the Rural Priorities element of the Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP), correct at 4 September 2013.

You will find summary statistics on this page, and further breakdowns can be accessed through the links below.

Previously, we reported on approved funding. We will now report on funding where contracts have been finalised.

These figures may also vary from previously-reported totals as a result of administrative checks and contract variations.
