DEFRA have announced that they are moving to a rolling application window for the rest of the Farming in Protected Landscapes programme.
The Farming in Protected Landscapes programme encourages farmers and other land managers working in Protected Landscapes (National Parks and ANOBs) to develop and deliver projects around the 4 themes:
The programme opened for applications in July last year and one of the points raised from the “test and learn” approach adopted from early pilots was the need to have a rolling application window for the programme, meaning it could be more inclusive and work flexibly with the farming calendar.
So, from now on, there will be a rolling application window for the rest of programme. You can now submit applications up until the programme closes for applications in 2024.
It is expected that this feedback will now form part of how other schemes are developed and delivered.
Contact the HNR office for more information about the scheme or contact your local ANOB / National Park officer.
