Clearly, member organisations have their own specific rural priorities that they focus on. Nevertheless, they all share a willingness to work with partners - both to meet their own objectives whilst at the same contributing to improving the overall prosperity and wellbeing of the rural East Riding.
The Rural Partnership provides a forum where these wider objectives can be shared and developed. The principle way these are captured and articulated is through a joint East Riding of Yorkshire Rural Strategy.
The current East Riding of Yorkshire Rural Strategy (2016-2020) provides a detailed assessment of the current context for the rural East Riding (e.g. policy and market trends) and identifies the key issues for rural businesses and communities. It sets out six key objectives that guide the delivery of an Annual Action Plan.
Alongside a number of intangible benefits, it is the joint delivery of a large number of practical activities contained within the Action Plan that illustrates the most tangible way the Rural Partnership makes a difference.
