OPEN FOR BUSINESS

We are still 'open for business' at the RSN with all of our staff working remotely to stay safe. We will still be delivering our services to our customers, although we're having a little think about how to best enable our usual face to face meetings and seminars.

We are looking forward to chatting with you online! If you have a query please email admin@sparse.gov.uk and we will get back to you.

Stay safe!

Time for a rural strategy

The RSN believes that the Government should take the lead and work with interested organisations to produce a comprehensive long term and funded Rural Strategy.  

We have developed a Template Rural Strategy which sets out the rational for calling for such a strategy.  We believe that it should include the following component parts and the Template Rural Strategy sets out evidence to support their inclusion:

  • A Thriving Rural Economy
  • A Digitally connected countryside
  • A Place everyone can get around
  • An Affordable Place to live
  • A fair deal on health and social care
  • A Place to learn and grow
  • A settlement (including fair funding for rural services) to support local action
  • A rural proofed policy framework

We call on Government to produce a Rural Strategy to set out their priorities for Englands Rural Communities and the Rural Economy for the future and we ask you to support this call
