You need to change the land cover with the RPA, if its a whole parcel it can be done over the phone if not an RLE1 form.Moved the goal posts as in new legislation it seems. Our HLS ended 3 years ago, with me ploughing up the Arable reversion , back into wheat. My BPS still comes up prepopulated that it’s permant pasture, despite me entering wheat on the claim form since then.
I’d be very careful now of being in a scheme unless I was prepared for life
Not again.....Imagine NE think they can assume property rights over these guys land....devalue the freehold from 10k/acre down to 3k over 450 acres.
That is where the environmental versus agricultural are about to clash big time.
Anyone still considering these schemes??
NFU....? Confused and not willing to tackle NE/RPA unless it's a cut and dried case.NE are the most shocking organisation. They could give the Gestapo lessons!! Their contracts mean nothing. They are totally one sided and I wouldn't trust them at all.
If they lose all trust of their clients nobody is going to sign up with them. Even farmers who are environmentally sympathetic are not signing new agreements. Not sure where the NFU are in cases like this!
Well they did for me. On an individual basis, they were excellent.....or maybe I just have a very good representative.NFU....? Confused and not willing to tackle NE/RPA unless it's a cut and dried case.
That seemed to be the response I am getting from HQ, but as you have found, local reps are good.Well they did for me. On an individual basis, they were excellent.....or maybe I just have a very good representative.
On a national scale I would question the NFU's actions against NE. It just appears to be accepted that NE can do exactly what they like without any recriminations.
