Serving members in the North

CLA North has thousands of farming, landowning and rural business members. They range from countryside enthusiasts with an acre or less to some of Britain's best-known farmers and biggest estates, plus a hugely diverse range of rural businesses. These members are supported by the regional team of staff and served by county and regional committees.

Campaigning

We campaign regionally on behalf of our members and the whole rural economy. We lobby national and local Government, respond to consultations and have representation in a range of organisations to safeguard our members' interests.

Help and advice

Our knowledge of planning, public access and environmental issues enables us to advise members on diversification and a wide range of other issues. We can also call upon our tax and legal experts at headquarters to advise on more complex matters. For help and advice on any matter, large or small, contact the team at the regional office. If we are unable to deal with the query we have a database of other experts with whom we can put you in touch.

Regional events

We arrange a number of seminars, webinars, visits and social events for the benefit of our members. These are advertised in our Enews and on the regional pages of the CLA's national Land & Business magazine.

Our regional committees

Our branch committee members are the eyes and ears of the CLA in each county and form an important role in formulating national policy, ensuring views and concerns of members in the North are taken into account with CLA national lobbying.
