Implementation of CAP Reform in England

November 12, 2013

Defra has launched a consultation seeking views on how they should implement the next round of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) in England for 2015 to 2020.

This consultation will be of interest to farmers, foresters, land managers, rural businesses and those working in the rural economy or with a role in environment management.

The consultation will close on November 28th 2013.

In addition to the online consultation, Defra are hosting a series of workshops to hear directly from people around the country.

The purpose of the workshops is to get the views of people at grass roots level who are living in rural communities.  The workshops last two and half hours each and will be hosted by Defra CAP policy officials with support from Defra’s regional delivery teams and the Forestry Commission.  Attendees will hear the background to the consultation and will then participate in facilitated discussions and workshop exercises, allowing them the opportunity to give their views on some of the questions included in the consultation.  The output from the workshops will feed in to the formal consultation.

To register all you need to do is complete the registration form, available online, and send it to the Defra Regional Delivery Team for the workshop you’d like to attend, via the email address listed.
