CLA South East: Agricultural Transition Plan Roadshow

This event is full. Bookings are now closed

Navigating the Agricultural Transition

We are now well into the Agricultural Transition in England, with a second round of BPS cuts in 2022, and further cuts due in 2023. By 2024, BPS recipients will have lost at least half of their BPS payments, ahead of the final year of payments in 2027.

The cuts in BPS are being redirected into new schemes with various focuses, with new schemes and new rounds of schemes being rolled out on a frequent basis. Keeping up to date with the opportunities can be a challenge, but it is important that CLA members remain alert to what is available, so businesses can choose what is right for them.

Building on the success of the Agricultural Transition Roadshows which ran in early 2022, the CLA is running a second series of roadshow events in early 2023. These two hour events will include an update on the latest policy developments along with presentations from farm resilience consultants offering free support and advice to farmers in England. There will also be opportunities for CLA members to raise specific questions with CLA experts, Defra and the Rural Payments Agency in one hour breakout sessions.

We will be running 4 roadshows in the South East on the dates and venues below:

Tuesday 4th April
Kent Showground, Kent (Morning)
South of England Showground, Sussex (Afternoon)

Wednesday 5th April 
Millets Farm, Oxford (Morning)
