The conference, which was covered by PoliticsHome.com, examined a range of issues including: community and governance, connectivity and access, services and the role of the land.
Speaking before the conference Rebecca Pow MP said: ‘It is clear that rural areas receive less attention than their urban counterparts and this must be addressed.
Rural areas face a number of diverse challenges, amongst them; the ageing population and gaps in the delivery of a wide range of services including transport, connectivity and medical provision. With a largely rural constituency I am working to highlight these issues in Westminster’.
