Responding to the confirmation of the appointment of Tony Juniper CBE as Natural England Chair, Sarah Hendry, Director General at the CLA said:

“We congratulate Tony Juniper on his appointment and are looking forward to meeting him as soon as possible to ensure a close ongoing relationship between our two organisations.

“Society will only be able to meet the goals and objectives of the government’s 25 year Environment Plan if Natural England and landowners work closely together to deliver a healthy environment alongside productive farming and the wider rural economy.

“Engaging with a broad range of stakeholders across the countryside will be key to turning aspiration into reality on the plan’s ambitions and we look forward to seeing a collaborative approach to compliance and inspection, as recently set out by the Farm Inspection and Regulation Task Force.”
