Welcome to Making it Local!


Making it Local has fully allocated its £1.4m budget

Making it Local is now closed. We are not accepting any new applications. If you do have a project idea we are happy to add your contact and project details to an enquiry list, we will then contact you should further funding become available.


The Making it Local, Local Action Group (LAG) is working with local people and businesses to develop opportunities for improving the rural economy and quality of life for people living and working in the area through a targeted grants programme called LEADER.

Our area is based on the parishes of the Blackdown Hills and East Devon AONBs and the surrounding gateway market towns.

Our overall aim is to use the outstanding environmental quality and local human potential as a ‘springboard’ for sustainable economic growth.
