Assurance schemes Ensuring Requirements Are Met Each assurance scheme requires a conservation plan that considers a wide range of potential features; whether it is archaeological interest, protected species or priority habitats. Working with the requirements of the assurance scheme FWAG SouthWest can assist you in preparing a plan that enables you to meet the requirements. Our aim is to provide you with a plan that meets the requirements of the scheme but also delivers real environmental benefits within your farming business. We achieve this by: Carrying out a farm visit to understand how your business works. Survey the features and species on your farm. Conducting a desk study to identify recorded features and species. Preparing a practical plan with clear maps and illustrations to hepl you implement measures.
