Community Led Local Development (CLLD)


Community-Led Local Development Plan (CLLD) – Summary of the Local Development Strategy


Funded by European Regional Development and European Social Funds (Combined as European Structural and Investment Funds- ESIF).

Rather than being a formal summary, this document contains some ‘highlights’ from the Community-Led Local Development Strategy produced for Inner South Leeds. In order to be able to submit a bid for European Union funding for the delivery stage of the CLLD, the Shadow Local Action Group that came together to oversee the preparatory stage had to deliver 3 things between February and August 2016:

1.            The Local Development Strategy (summarised here)

2.            Arrangements for the full Local Action Group (LAG)

3.            Confirmation of an Accountable Body (which Leeds City Council has agreed take on).

Following extensive consultation during June and July with local people, third sector and public agencies and businesses, the Shadow LAG developed this Strategy, meeting all the requirements of the EU for this first stage.  Health for All was the lead partner and submitted the Strategy and associated documentation in August.

The South Leeds CLLD comprises an area to the south of Leeds city which includes the wards of Beeston and Holbeck, City and Hunslet, and Middleton Park, plus a small area of Morley South.

CLLD is aimed at supporting those who are furthest from the labour market, by adopting a community-led approach. South Leeds has some wonderful qualities. It has vibrant and diverse communities, and compassionate and caring people that help to make our communities and our city great places to live and work. It has a wide range of employers and educational opportunities on the doorstep. There are great choices of development opportunities for businesses and others. Yet deprivation persists. More than that, it is ‘sticky’ – while our city thrives, poverty and inequality continues unabated. If successful in bidding to deliver the Strategy, we will work with the most marginalised people in our communities to support them into work and to develop entrepreneurship.

The Strategy has been submitted and now we wait to find out whether its implementation will be funded by the EU.  So please keep a look out for further information and action around South Leeds CLLD and how you can get involved, especially towards the end of the year.
