Local Action Group (LAG)

The Local Action Group is integral to the LEADER approach. The main aim of the Local Action Group is to promote and reinforce the value of co-operative and partnership working by bringing together organisations and individuals who have an interest in encouraging development in rural areas. It is a locally-led approach to rural development, involving representatives from the public, private and voluntary and community sectors, with at least half of its members drawn from the non-public sector. Representatives have to live or work in the area and come from a diverse range of communities of interest.
