Land Use Policy Group
Agricultural policies should reflect the wide range of social and environmental benefits that farmers can provide.
We see agriculture as a source of prosperity and employment for rural and remote areas and as a means to support a thriving and dynamic countryside.
We belong to the Land Use Policy Group (LUPG), which commissions research and advises on rural land use matters such as agriculture and woodlands.
LUPG comprises representatives from the UK statutory conservation, countryside and environment agencies:
- Natural England
- Countryside Council for Wales
- Environment Agency
- Northern Ireland Environment Agency
- Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)
We have just published a new report: UK country Agricultural Policy developments - LUPG briefing December 2019
