Community Led Local Development (CLLD)

Cornwall Development Company is currently recruiting to deliver CLLD, an ERDF/ESF funded programme that will deliver investment to the most deprived areas of Cornwall.

CLLD is about local people getting involved to take the lead on activity that provides sustainable economic benefits in areas of Cornwall that have some real problems such as social exclusion or very low levels of employment.  The projects that will be supported will create jobs, develop skills and achieve sustainable economic growth. We are currently working with over 100 projects to make a change in our core neighbourhoods. We work with businesses and community groups, charities and sole traders to develop projects across Cornwall, supported by our wonderful Local Action Groups who make the decisions.

It is a new and different way of investing in local areas that uses two European Funding streams, plus a range of financial support from Cornwall Council to bring new ideas and solutions to old problems.
