Loud Catchment Facilitation Group - RRT

Description of activity

The new Countryside Stewardship scheme (NELMS as was) encourages catchment based action through the funding of Facilitation Groups through a competitive process. In 2015, RRT were successful in getting funding for a group on the Loud catchment and the AONB team have contributed in the targeting of this group -  in particular - areas within the catchment where boundary restoration is a priority; farms with potential for meadow restoration.

Expected outcomes of activity

Increased environmental gain from new agreements within the area - under mid tier and higher tier of CS

Activity date
1st September 2015 to 1st September 2019
