Generally a timid soul, don't like to make waves, but attached what I have said from day 1 of ELMs, everything I have read and been told since just reinforces my views.

if we have to apply to different quango's or defra for fences or reseeding planting or .... or taking a crap we no longer own the farm even if we do... we will have effectively given up our farms to chase a pittance for what ?
And….will land that isn’t tied in to these schemes (for an obviously indeterminate period) , command a premium in future?

Your "Elms and Critical Mass" document is a very pertinent piece, but will be ignored by farming and Govt/DEFRA. More fool farming...

I was thinking along the same lines last week with reference to your first para. on critical mass. It is something many of us have or will experience sooner than we like.
