A steering group comprised Action with Communities in Rural England, the County Councils Network, the Commission for Rural Communities, the Local Government Association, the National Association of Local Councils and the Rural Services Network.
Following a call for evidence to rural practitioners and representative organisations, the resources outline the underlying principles of good service design and delivery and are supported by examples of good practice.
Three resources are available for free download. These are:
1. A headline statement explaining what rural proofing is and the benefits that it offers;
2. An insight paper containing examples of local level rural proofing in practice; and
3. A briefing note in slide pack form providing easy access to the findings of the work and promoting the benefits and practice of local level rural proofing.
