What’s been happening:-


Philip Meade:-

Detective work today having been given a map of some fields with very few other clues except the sheet number SN...... and the field numbers and asked by our client to find out who owned them.

Haven’t used a land ranger map for a while now but sometimes the old ways are the best!


Philip Meade:-

Day out visiting farms near the west coast, beautiful day, ice cream on the way home. Who wants an office job on days like this????




Kathryn Williams:-

Another successful planning application for an agricultural building and access track. In this case the farmer is a tenant who also owns a block of agricultural land close to his tenanted farm. As the Landlord was not prepared to treat the new building as a tenant's improvement, the farmer decided to erect the building on his own land. Visual amenity and access were significant factors to consider as no previous development had occured on the site, however these were overcome through careful planning, discussions and a site meeting with the Planning Officer. For planning advice please contact our Oswestry office

Late environmental payments to be paid

Thousands of farmers owned money for environmental schemes are to be paid in July.

The Rural Payments Agency has announced that payments will be made in full to Environmental Stewardship (ES) and Countryside Stewardship (CS) customers with unpaid annual revenue claims, some dating back to 2015, by the end of July.

RPA Chief Executive Paul Caldwell said: “We are determined to build on the improvements that we have already put in place, keep up a regular cycle of timely payments, and restore confidence in these schemes which are so important for our environment.”

The RPA is writing to all unpaid customers to provide an update on payments. Once individual claims have been processed, the RPA will write again to confirm any adjustments to be made to the final payment.

Taking land out of production for species-rich meadows, building ponds to provide a water source for wildlife, or planting trees for carbon sequestration are a few of the options under ES and CS that farmers and land managers are currently paid for.

The future Environment Land Management (ELM) scheme, which will replace CS and ES post Brexit, will undergo tests and trials on farms and is expected to be fully operational in late 2024.
