Abstract

The tool-kit is a step-by-step guidance manual that takes the user through a process that identifies the driving forces at work in an area, predicts changes in the landscape, predicts changes in the rural economy, identifies opportunities to enhance the landscape and/or rural economy and, allows the user to interpret and feed this information into local authority decision making processes. The tool-kit for policy-makers, such as the Welsh Development Agency (WDA), and the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW), developing long term strategies; decision makers selecting funding opportunities; decision makers involved in developing rural business opportunities and the development and targeting of grant programmes at the local level, such as various County agencies and departments, other Local Authorities, CCW, WDA, and WAG; and, planners making decisions about how best to develop an area such as local authority planning officers.
