Local Government Bulletin - Funding for FarmersThe government announced yesterday (18 May) that farmers and landowners will be able to bid for a share of £15 million Landscape Recovery Scheme, to help them to collaborate and work in partnership to protect and enhance landscapes in England.
Landscape Recovery supports landowners and managers to take a large-scale, long-term approach to producing environmental and climate goods on their land.
The second round of the scheme will support up to 25 projects which will be administered by Natural England and the Environment Agency – the lead delivery partners for the scheme. The projects will be selected based on their environmental and social impact, value for money and suitability for the scheme.
Councils are encouraged to share this information with farmers and landowners in their area.
