Our consultants can help you apply for and manage agri-environment schemes in England and Wales. Our consultancy advice can include:

  • Making the decision to apply for a scheme,
  • Choosing the most appropriate options and capital items
  • Help with ongoing management

Choosing the right options

Our team of consultants have an in-depth understanding of farm business management and farmland wildlife and can help to create an application which is tailored to the needs of your business.

We can guide you through the whole application process, including liaison with Natural England, Catchment Sensitive Farming Officers, Local Planning Authorities and the Environment Agency as appropriate. We can also prepare the supporting information and evidence required to support your application.

Ongoing management

For those in ongoing schemes, we can ensure that the requirements of the scheme are fully understood and complied with correctly. For example, we can assist with record keeping, nutrient management planning and implementation of habitat management options.

New Environment Land Management Scheme (ELMS)

As the new Environment Land Management Scheme takes shape, our consultants will ensure that they are fully up to date with developments to make sure that clients receive the best advice. If you are currently part of the Countryside Stewardship scheme, we can help with the transition to ELMS.

To discuss your requirements, please contact Fiona Tweedie, Senior Agri-environment Scheme Consultant.
