Rural Coalition

Rural Coalition response to the Levelling Up White Paper

The Rural Coalition is thirteen national organisations who subscribe to a vision for a living and working countryside in England.

Given many shared values, the coalition seeks to be more influential by joining in common cause to influence government decision making, and calls for:

  • All post-Brexit policies must be rural proofed
  • Policies and funding must deliver a fair deal for rural communities

  • Decision-making, funding and delivery must be devolved and involve rural communities

Rural Coalition

The Rural Coalition believes that the evidence points to four policy priorities:

  • A meaningful increase in the delivery of affordable housing in villages and small towns

  • Proper recognition of rural service delivery challenges and services designed to meet rural needs

  • Long-term support for social action, to help communities become more resilient

  • Business support and infrastructure which reaches rural areas, so the rural economy can grow and create quality jobs
