Country Land and Business Associates (CLA) has proposed a new Land Management Contract for the payment for delivery of public benefits.
The CLA says that a new Land Management Contract would change the relationship between the public and land managers, so that alongside high-quality food, defined public benefits would be provided by land managers. The proposals would also see an approach to public funds that would integrate sustainable farming practices and woodland management alongside environmental and heritage land use management.
To achieve this, the CLA proposes that the Land Management Contract would include four elements:
Available to all land managers, who could choose from a menu of positive land management activities and sustainable farming practices. A premium payment would incentivise ambitious delivery.
To support the Universal Land Management Contract and provide standalone improvements such as woodland creation, improved infrastructure to reduce pollution and improve animal health.
A scheme to make targeted, more complex improvements to land management, which encourages collaboration.
Large scale, competitive scheme that will address major environmental challenges
