Special Environmental Sites and Schemes

20. Objective 5b

Support under Objective 5b, which was a joint EU/UK funded rural development programme, was available in the six English areas which have been designated under Objective 5b of the EC Structural Funds. The designations ran from 1994-1999. Applicants submitted for funding their own proposals for revitalising the rural economy. As this scheme was essentially an economic regeneration programme, assistance for environmental and conservation measures is only available where the project also demonstrates a clear economic benefit to the Objective 5b area. 

Many of the areas who were eligible for funding and successful in winning funds were able to ran rural development and agri-environmental projects.
