Managing the Rural Environment
CLA Policy On The Environment
The rural environment is a key issue for the CLA. All of our members work on or surrounded by the rural environment, as providers of fibre, food, fuel, game, habitats, landscapes, minerals, rural tourism, timber, land and buildings. They have a real desire to preserve its value for future generations.
The CLA calls on the Government to:

Report Fly-tipping - Don't Suffer In Silence
The CLA urges all members in the West Midlands and the North-West to report fly-tipping on their land to their regional offices. The pilot project recording incidents on private land has been extended to September.
If private owners forget to report incidents, the Government is likely to gain a false picture of the incidence of fly-tipping. Please ring your regional office if it happens on your land, so that they can report it, via The Landowner Partnership Project, onto the Flycapture database.
We have had some success in reporting incidents, but many remain unreported. The CLA is trying to address fly-tipping issues with Defra and the Environment Agency. Derek Holliday has re-emphasised the CLA's three-point plan to combat the problem at a meeting of he National Fly-Tipping and Prevention Group.
The CLA continues to lobby ministers to:
