Environmental Land Management and the agricultural transition

Inquiry

The Environmental Land Management (ELM) scheme is the centrepiece of the Government’s new approach to farm support, as well as being key to delivering its environmental ambitions. Over the next seven years, the new scheme will be piloted and then fully introduced, while EU-style direct payments will be phased out.

Ahead of the national pilot of ELM launching in 2021, this inquiry will ask if the Government’s plans are realistic and whether it has listened to farmers and land managers. It will look at the support farmers will need to manage the transition, and how the new scheme can be made to work for farmers and the environment.
