Reimagining land use

The shift from a subsidy-based agriculture economy to a new focus on biodiversity and sustainability is creating a once-in-a-generation change for landowners. You don’t have to tackle this uncertainty alone.

The CLA can help

Government remuneration for landowners will soon be based on the Sustainable Farming Initiative, the Local Nature Recovery Programme and the Landscape Recovery Scheme, all activities that have a cost to deliver but no immediate market value. And food production will remain a core activity, though without the same subsidies and therefore with reduced income.

For over 100 years, the CLA has been helping our members diversify their businesses, creating a rural economy that delivers for current and future generations.

We can help you navigate the intricacies of the new remuneration regime and maximise the potential of your land.
