Just a word on the news of the closing report for the Rural Regeneration Zone under the Executive Chair of Peter Pawsey. The RRZ had it’s critics – not least that many projects shouldn’t have had support at all and still others would have benefited but news didn’t reach them.
My view is that the board and team at RRZ did a great job. I’d agree that not all the projects benefited more than a chosen few but overall there was investment into our counties that wouldn’t have happened without the work of a very small team. Well done Peter, well done the Rural Regeneration Zone team.
