Environmental Land Management: policy discussion

Closes 31 Jul 2020

Opened 25 Feb 2020

Overview

Thank you for your interest in the ELM Policy Discussion Document, which sets out our initial thinking for ELM scheme design, providing an update on progress and overview of high-level design options.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, and the concerns expressed by our stakeholders, we paused the policy discussion on 8th April.

We have now reopened the Policy Discussion Document for responses.

The closing date for responses is 31st July 2020.

If you have already submitted a response, it is still valid and will be analysed along with all other responses received. You are welcome to submit another response (to reflect a change of view, submit extra information etc.), but the original response will still be counted .

We will be running interactive online seminars for farmers, foresters and land managers in England, to discuss what our proposals mean for them. These will be held on the following dates:

•Wednesday, 1st July – 12:00-1:30 pm
•Tuesday, 7th July – 6:00-7:30 pm
•Thursday, 16th July – 8:30-10:00 am
•Thursday, 23rd July – 12:00-1:30 pm
•Tuesday, 28th July – 8:30-10:00 am
•Thursday, 30th July - 6:00-7:30 pm
