What will rural communities look like in the future?

What will rural communities look like in the future?

A discussion paper ‘What will rural communities look like in thefuture?’  has been published by the cabinet office and Department forEnvironment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Attendees discussed issues that specifically impact on rural areas, including dispersed populations and connectivity to physical and virtual services. They also discussed issues that affect both rural and urban areas, but in different ways e.g.  ageing, population growth and affordable housing.

This paper reports the main points discussed by external experts. It is not a statement of government policy.
