Brexit and our land: Securing the future of Welsh farming Consultation

Welsh Government are consulting on the proposals for a planned, multi-year transition and seeking views on: 

  • A new land management programme consisting of an Economic Resilience Scheme and a Public Goods Scheme.
  • How the specific schemes that will deliver the support should be designed.


This consultation is an important opportunity for all stakeholders - farming and forestry related businesses, environmental organisations, local authorities, members of the public, professional bodies and others - to provide their views on what actions we should take to support land managers after we leave the European Union. The closing date for the consultation is 30 October 2018.
