There are some constraints initially concerning the eligibility of businesses depending on their location, (one of the requirements of the European funding for the project), as we are targeting the economically underactive parts of Cornwall in the first stage. These are what our funders CLLD refer to as ‘Core’ areas and in Bude it is quite a small area initially, as indicated by the dark shaded area on the attached map. However, we are hoping to open up the geographical reach as soon as possible.
