Unleashing Rural Opportunity
Today the Conservative government published Unleashing Rural Opportunity - a new set of initiatives supporting housing, bolstering connectivity, and upgrading transport in rural communities as we work to grow the economy.
- The countryside makes up 90 per cent of our country’s land mass, but many rural communities do not enjoy the same quality of services as our cities, so it is right that we work to improve the lives of rural residents.
- That is why today the government published "Unleashing Rural Opportunity," which includes initiatives which will support farmers who wish to build residential homes on their land, bolster connectivity in hard-to-reach areas, improve local transport networks through our Future of Transport Rural Strategy, and help more communities upgrade local services such as libraries and village halls.
- A thriving countryside benefits our whole country - helping to create jobs, spread prosperity, and grow our economy.
