This project aims to provide land managers with support, advice and guidance for environmental land management as the UK leaves the European Union.

In a post-Brexit and Common Agricultural Policy scenario there is likely to be a lack of information and guidance for agri-environment schemes.

We aim to help address this and support land managers in the Darent Valley with a free expert service that will encourage joint working and protection of existing farmed landscapes.

 

  • Free advisory service for land managers in the Darent Valley
  • Post-Brexit and Common Agricultural Policy support

 

If you would like more information on this service including how to access it, please contact darent.valley@kentdowns.org.uk
