The Welsh Government has recently launched a significant consultation Taking Forward Wales’ Sustainable Management of Natural Resources. It represents a wide-ranging and radical series of ideas in agriculture, designated landscapes, access, water abstraction and drainage, forestry, regulation and more. See the document here.
Rebecca Williams, CLA Cymru Director says, “Land owners, managers and farmers should focus on these proposals, understand their implications and assist us in providing a strong evidence-based response to the Welsh Government.”
As well as presenting a range of very technical issues which will impact on farmers, landowners and foresters, the consultation is seeking views on legislation that may be needed post-Brexit.
