New National Rural Proofing Guidelines available

New National Rural Proofing Guidelines available

On the 16th July, the Rural Communities Policy Unit (RCPU) published new National Rural Proofing Guidelines. These sit alongside existing resources already available including the local level resource materials and the Rural Proofing for Health Toolkit.  These guidelines are designed to assist national policy makers with their decision taking and to address the needs and interests of rural communities and businesses in England. The guidance presents clear principles of rural proofing in a straightforward manner, and emphasises practical examples of good practice. You can download the full rural proofing guidelines here. In May this year they also produced a pamphlet to act as a short handy guide to rural proofing.  For more information email the RCPU at rural.communities@defra.gsi.gov.uk
