Events: CS and ELMs update meeting

Last year the “Farming is changing” booklet was released (which can be read here) and “The Path to Sustainable Farming: An Agricultural Transition Plan 2021-2024” was published at the end of November (and can be read here.)

These documents explain the changes that are being made to agricultural payments including the phase out of BPS, the new Environmental Land Management Scheme, capital grants and Countryside Stewardship.

The Farm Team at the Yorkshire Dales National Park held a series of meetings in February to discuss the changes that will be happening over the coming transitional years and looking ahead to the new Environmental Land Management Scheme as well as looking at updates to Countryside Stewardship for the coming year. We had good discussion about the future agri-environment schemes and we will be feeding this back in due course as well as providing the feedback to Defra.
