DEFRA is currently designing a new Environmental Land Management scheme (ELMs) which will replace the current rural grant system including the Basic Payment Scheme and Countryside Stewardship Scheme. As part of the development of ELMs, the Quantock Hills AONB is running a project to inform and support DEFRA in co-designing ELMs with landowners in the Quantock area.

Key aspects of ELMs will be working towards national goals outlined in the 25-year environmental plan as well as local targets to preserve and enhance the character and natural beauty of the Quantock Hills. This will be achieved through the development of whole holding land management plans.

During this introductory event we will cover;

  • Introduction to ELMs
  • Farming for the Nation - Test and Trials
  • Identifying and addressing local priorities
  • Co-design of Land Management Plan
  • Measuring success
  • Feedback session

Following the event, we will be looking to recruit landowners to help co-develop the different aspects of the scheme and lead the development of the ELMs to address local priorities in the Quantock Hills area. Financial incentives are available for participants of the Test and Trial.
