LEADER Funding Area

Defra final mapdd52The Bolsover North East Derbyshire LEADER area covers most areas within Bolsover and North East Derbyshire Districts.

Some areas are ineligible for funding such as Bolsover, Clay Cross, Dronfield, Shirebrook and South Normanton. These are classed as Urban based upon Census Output Areas by the Office for National Statistics 

The map to the right gives an indication of these areas - light blue shaded areas are eligible and unshaded parts are ineligible.

To check if your project is within an eligible area call the LEADER team or check your project postcode yourself using Defra's Magic maps. Guidance instructions at the foot of this page. 

If the location is not within the LEADER area, there may be the opportunity to access other funds:

North East Derbyshire District Council has a 'Business Growth Fund' for applicants within Clay Cross and Dronfield. For more information on the scheme and how to apply, click here to visit the webpage.

The Bolsover District Council 'Business Growth Fund' is also available for the areas of Bolsover Town, Shirebrook and South Normanton. Further details can be found via this link
