IRD Projects 1982-8 • Integrated Rural Development Projects – Set up using EC (now EU) money. • Involved local people, North Staffordshire County Council and the Peak National Park Planning Board. • Three main objectives to help reduce population decline: • Introduce business enterprises. • Promote tourism. • Improve local amenities and build new houses.

    8. IRD Projects 1982-8 - business development Market Hall – Renovated to provide a craft centre and tea rooms. Employs many locals and attracts tourists.

    9. IRD Projects 1982-8 - business development The Horseshoe Inn – Grant for fire-proofing needed to establish B&B business.

    10. IRD Projects 1982-8 - business development • Crewe & Harper Hotel – grant for: • showers in 8 bedrooms so the hotel could cater for business visitors. • national advertising. • beer garden. • kitchen equipment. • Safeguarded 6 jobs, created 1 other.

    13. IRD Projects 1982-8 - community schemes Grant to create a tourist information point in the village stores.

    14. IRD Projects 1982-8 - agriculture Grant to help young farmers in Longnor. This involved keeping farm cost diaries and training on conservation strategies (conservation and diversification grants can maintain income for dairy farmers who have suffered because of EU milk quotas).

    15. RDC - Grants for single shops in isolated villages. 1996 Rural Development Commission (government body) award grants in the form of reduced business rates.

    16. First climbing wall built in Staffordshire at Leek college, Longnor using RDC grants. Cost £40,000.

    17. Coventry Churches Housing Association 1983 14 houses: rented only to the young (between 1971 and 1991 almost 50% of 16-20 year olds left the village). Unfortunately the cost of local stone and slate (strict planning controls) pushed prices up.

    18. Problems still remaining... Poor public transport: 1 bus to Leek and 3 to Buxton per day. School children have to be bussed to Leek.

    19. Problems still remaining... Lack of affordable housing: Many council houses have been sold off. Retired incomers and people who buy second/holiday homes can compete more effectively for local housing.

    20. Problems still remaining... Poor upkeep of buildings results in the need for renovation.
