Environmental Stewardship

Agri-environmental Schemes and Rural Development

With environmental funding for the agricultural sector becoming more difficult to obtain, it is vital that you have up to date advice at your disposal when considering any rural development or agri-environment schemes on your property.

The current Rural Development Programme (RDP) runs until 2020 (subject to the U.K.’s exit agreement with the E.U.) and includes a wide range of grants in England and Wales.

We have experience in all our offices to help you identify the right funding opportunities. We can provide you with considered, impartial advice on the best route to take with a scheme as an integral part of your business.
