Last week, I wrote a post about the importance of England’s Protected Landscapes – our National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Today, I’m pleased to tell you about the new Defra-funded Farming in Protected Landscapes programme, which will be open for applications from next month.
Will Pryer leads the team responsible for environmental outcomes across protected landscapes.
Will leads on the design and implementation of the new Farming in Protected Landscapes programme.
You might remember that in the Agricultural Transition Plan, we mentioned the introduction of a Farming in Protected Landscapes programme. We’re preparing to release more information about that programme in the coming weeks, but before then, I wanted to share a few reasons why protected landscapes are so important.
