Clarity over future funding arrangements is crucial to ensure support for rural communities in Wales after Brexit, councils have warned.

Leaders of the Welsh Local Government Association met 'key partners' at the Royal Welsh Show in Llanelwedd to discuss proposals from the Cardiff government.

The Welsh government is currently seeking views on proposals in its 'sustainable farming and our land' strategy.

Joint chair of the WLGA Rural Forum Rosemarie Harris said: 'I’m very pleased to have had the chance to informally meet with some of our key partners to discuss these proposals.

'It is important that we’re able to have these conversations, so that we are able to provide a more comprehensive response to the Welsh government’s consultation.'

Joint chair Dyfrig Siencyn said: 'For those communities to be able to prepare for the changes as best as they can, clarity over future funding arrangement is absolutely crucial.

'The future viability of our rural economies hinges on our ability to successfully replace EU arrangements and to maintain fair investment in these communities.'
