Written answers (Question to Environment)

It is not possible to provide precise administration costs in relation to the Axes 3 and 4 (LEADER) elements of the Rural Development Programme 2007 – 2013 (RDP) for 2013/2014 at this time as this will be based on the actual expenditure of the Local Development Companies (LDCs) during the 2013/2014 period.

The Regulations under which the LEADER elements of the RDP operate allow for up to 20% of the total RDP expenditure per LDC to be spent on administration. This is the maximum allowable and all LDCs have been notified that in the interests of efficiency and effectiveness they should aim to come well below this.

The table details the revised allocation per LDC and the maximum administration allowable under the Programme for its operational years i.e. 2009-2014. If the revised allocations change in the future the maximum administration allocation allowable under the Programme will also be amended.
