The Atlantic and Moor CLLD Area covers the area of Cornwall from Newquay North and East to the Cornwall border, and specifically the areas of Newquay, Bodmin, St Columb Major, Tintagel, Launceston and Bude.
There are 14 ‘Core areas’ (30% most deprived nationally) in the Atlantic & Moor area and 27 ‘Functional areas’. The two hub towns of Bodmin and Newquay are the most deprived clusters and 2 of the Core LSOAS in Bodmin are between 10-20% most deprived nationally.
To be eligible for funding your project must aim to achieve one or more of the Objectives from the Local Development Strategy and be based in a Core area or, if the project activity takes place in a Functional area, be of benefit for people in a Core area.
AMLAG is unlikely to fund feasibility studies unless it can be demonstrated that the study has a productive purpose relating to CLLD Objectives and does not duplicate existing published information.
Due to the relatively low level of funding allocated to create workspace, AMLAG is unlikely to be able to support major capital investment projects.
