Rural Coalition letter to the Prime Minister

The Rural Coalition, wrote to the Prime Minister on 7 September, highlighting the challenges facing rural communities and businesses.

The immediate challenge of the cost of living is a major concern for those in rural areas, as elsewhere, but the impact and nature of the challenge may affect rural dwellers and businesses differently, for example those properties off-grid or remote from key services. We know the government you will be looking at ways of tackling these issues across the country, but we would urge the government to ensure that any measures introduced are properly rural-proofed from the outset.
