The Bolsover North East Derbyshire (BNED) LEADER area is situated in north eastern Derbyshire. Key influences on the area are the Peak District to the west, Sheffield City Region to the north, Sherwood Forest to the east, Nottingham and Derby to the south, and the M1 Corridor. The area combines market towns with a range of villages, some of the chocolate box variety, others with an industrial heritage.
From the identification of the key challenges the Partnership has set a vision;
To develop a vibrant, dynamic and diverse rural economy by engaging local communities in an inclusive rural agenda to increase economic productivity and growth through the sustainable and creative development of rural resources, green infrastructure, the natural environment and heritage assets of the area.
