The Welsh Government launched on the 10 July 2018 a consultation on a new Land Management Programme to support Welsh farmers post-Brexit, replacing the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
The Government proposed two new large and flexible schemes to replace Basic Payment Scheme (BPS), Glastir and other parts of the Rural Development Programme.
The programme would consist of the following two schemes:
+ The Economic Resilience Scheme would provide targeted investment to land managers and their supply chains. It would provide investment to increase competitiveness and make improvements in resilience and productivity for high-quality food production.
+ The Public Goods Scheme would provide a new income stream to land managers delivering public goods from the land. It would enable them to help address challenges such as climate change mitigation, habitat loss, poor air and water quality.
All land managers would have the opportunity to benefit from the new schemes, not just those currently receiving CAP. However, people would need to do things differently in return for this support.
The plan would be to start moving to the new schemes as from 2020.
Separately, the Welsh Affairs Committee of the House of Commons issued a report on the 9 July 2018 (link via hyperlink below), with a UK Government response published in October 2018.
