Tuesday 24 April – registration & refreshments 2pm seminar commences 2.30pm
Cost: £15 CLA members; £25 non-members

The Government’s attention is firmly focused on stimulating economic growth. It has conducted an economic growth review across government including the completion of a Rural Economy Growth Review. The Chancellor’s Autumn Statement, also talked about stimulating the rural economy with a promise to reform the planning system, simplify tax for small businesses and overhaul broadband infrastructure as well as opening a consultation on making it easier to use redundant agricultural buildings for commercial purposes.

Whether in traditional farming, a food enterprise, tourism and leisure, traditional commercial or the burgeoning creative sector, there are new opportunities for rurally based businesses to grow and to contribute to the recovery of the national economy. This seminar will bring together a stimulating and informative programme which will set out the new legislative and regulatory background; the support measures and delivery mechanisms available to rural businesses and will offer real examples of rural businesses that have stepped up to the challenge of growth.
