Delivering for Rural Communities

Delivering for Rural Communities

The document is a response to the independent review which the previous government commissioned, to look at how effective rural proofing had been, and in particular how well government departments had used the package of rural proofing support information issued by Defra in July 2013. The review aimed to identify how well departments were designing their policies in order to deliver them in rural areas.
The government response will take forward a number of actions to make sure the needs of people living in rural areas are taken properly into account in decision making, and that its residents are given the same opportunities as those based in cities.
