ADAS provides consultancy services to farmers on all aspects of agri-environment management. This can include making the decision to apply for a scheme, choosing the most appropriate options and capital items and help with on-going management.
Our team of consultants have an in-depth understanding of farm business management and farmland wildlife and can help to create an application which is tailored to the needs of your business. We can guide you through the whole application process, including liaison with Natural England, Catchment Sensitive Farming Officers, Local Planning Authorities and the Environment Agency as appropriate. We can also prepare the supporting information and evidence required to support your application.
For those in ongoing schemes, we can ensure that the requirements of the scheme are fully understood and complied with correctly. For example we can assist with record keeping, nutrient management planning and implementation of habitat management options.
We can also offer farm infrastructure consultancy in relation to the design and location of certain capital items.
Our services include:
- Scheme and option selection advice
- Applications process
- Engaging with Natural England and consultees at all stages
- Management of ongoing schemes
- Design advice for capital items
We expect that there will be a new Environmental Land Management Scheme coming on-stream in the future. ADAS consultants will ensure that they are fully up to date with developments to make sure that clients receive the best advice.
