£80m package for farming and environment in Wales

December 18, 2018 at 1:18 PM

An £80 million funding package to help farmers face the considerable challenges of Brexit and support delivery of environmental outcomes in Wales has been announced by the Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Planning and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths.

The money will be available to extend many Glastir agreements, enable further investment through the Sustainable Production Grant and allow the continuation of the Farm Business Grant.

Funding of £62.9m will extend all Glastir Advanced agreements, including underlying Glastir Entry elements where they are in place, all current Glastir Commons agreements and all current Glastir Organics contracts to 2021. There will also be a further round of Glastir Small Grants.

A further £16m allocation will be made to the Sustainable Production Grant to help farmers prepare for the introduction of regulations to protect water quality from agricultural pollution and improve their nutrient management. The current Farm Business Grant will also continue and will support farmers to invest in equipment and machinery to increase their business sustainability and profitability

Kathryn Williams at Davis Meade Property Consultants said the commitment to continue grant funding will provide certainty for land managers and ensure delivery of important environmental work during this difficult time.
