Local development strategy for
Leader Gästrikebygden Lokalt ledd utveckling 2014-2020

Summary

Gästrikebygden is one of the Swedish areas included in the national programme of community led local development using the LEADER approach 2014-2020 (CLLD). During the programme period, we will implement our development strategy using the vision “together we will generate a rich and sustainable life in Gästrikebygden”.

The strategy builds on the requirements and possibilities identified for the area. The overall goals for the strategy are more jobs and mobilisation of the local development potential, and these goals must be achieved through investments in competence development, integration, the visitor industry, local products, environmentally intelligent social development and the fishing industry. Our area presents complex challenges and our strategy is therefore co-financed by all of the EU’s accessible development funds for the CLLD programme: rural, social, regional and maritime & fishery funds.

There are nearly 292,000 inhabitants included in our strategy. Of these, there are 67,249 inhabitants in the municipalities of Ockelbo, Hofors, Gävle and Sandviken who are affected by all four funds, while the maritime and fishery fund includes a further 225,428 inhabitants in our neighbouring areas of Hälsingland and Nedre Dalälven.

Our four multi-funded municipalities have many strong partnerships and together form the landscape of Gästrikland, which is the border area where northern and southern Sweden meet. Like a Sweden in miniature, you find coast and inland, villages and towns, deep forests and open landscapes here that together with the inhabitants create rich opportunities for community led local development. The area covered by the fishery fund includes a rich water system of lakes and rivers that forms an attractive area for leisure fishing, culminating in a common basin in the southern part of the Gulf of Bothnia, where there is an active commercial fishing industry.
