Farming in Protected Landscapes

Farming is changing on the Northumberland Coast

Farm support is entering a period of fundamental change, as set out in the Agricultural Transition Plan.

Within this plan, it has been recognised that farmers and landowners in protected landscapes are providing huge environmental, social and cultural benefits but that farming profitably without direct payments is often challenging.

Therefore, a Farming in Protected Landscapes programme is proposed to provide advice and funding for those in protected landscapes.

From April 2021-2024, the Farming in Protected Landscapes scheme will provide financial support to farmers and other land managers in National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The funding will help them support and manage the natural environment, cultural heritage and public access.
