Current Position - November 2014
•The final programme has yet to be approved by the UK Government and EC
•Draft progamme for ESF and ERDF is “sector blind” i.e does not include or exclude any sector
•The high priority is the value of the employment rather than volume.
•The EARDF programme is nationally administered in the UK and does include a specific reference to rural sustainable tourism development
