The Rural Design Centre exists to make rural life better

They work with people and organisations who are passionate about the place they live and work. They help to create new ideas and turn them into solutions.

Rural UK is more diverse than people think at first. It is much more than farming and tourism. Rural economies have untapped potential for innovation and positive change.

The Rural Design Centre’s primary focus is the North East of England, where they are developing and demonstrating new ways of tackling rural issues. Activity at the moment is located in the North of Tyne Combined Authority area, including Northumberland. They are also starting to work in other areas; please contact them if you are interested.

The Centre was developed with support from the North East LEP. Current activity is part-funded by North of Tyne Combined Authority and the European Regional Development Fund (until 2023).
