Eligible Areas for LEADER Funding


The Bolsover North East Derbyshire LEADER area covers many of the wards within Bolsover and North East Derbyshire Districts.

The main areas that are ineligible for funding are essentially the Market Towns of Bolsover, Clay Cross, Dronfield, Shirebrook and South Normanton which are designated as being Urban. This has been classified by the Office for National Statistics and is based upon Census Output Areas.

However, some areas on the edge of the built-up urban areas may be eligible to receive LEADER funding. The map below gives an indication of these areas - the parts shaded light blue are the eligible areas and the unshaded parts are ineligible.

To determine if your project is within an eligible area, Defra and Natural England have developed an interactive online mapping tool called Magic. To use the mapping tool, click on the Magic link above and follow the instructions which can be found at the foot of this page. 

If, having used the mapping tool, you are still unsure of your location's eligibility, contact the LEADER Team.
