Following the success of two programmes of LEADER funding on Salisbury Plain members were keen to put forward an application for the following programme from January 2015 to March 2021. In addition, members wanted to take the opportunity to expand the area, although the limit of a population of 150,000 for a local action group meant that the application was split into two, Plain Action and Vale Action. It was on this basis that the consultations through 2014 were undertaken, during which more than 850 members of the public attended meetings and over 30 specialist organisations were involved.

Local Development Strategies for both areas were produced and submitted to Defra in early September.
