What if we want to copy a successful project done somewhere else?

In principle you could copy a successful project from elsewhere as long as it meets the criteria laid down in the LDS and is adapted to local circumstances. In fact this may save a deal of groundwork at the outset but should not substitute for actual consultation within the community. Similar reasoning applies to successful projects in the programme area but it should be noted that LEADER criteria place a premium on innovation and simply repeating projects is unlikely to result in a successful application.

If the project has already been tried in the programme area and was not successful it would be necessary to ask why not and address the reasons for failure before the project would stand a chance of being funded.
