Open Consultation: The future for food, farming and the environment

DEFRA, working with the Centre for Rural Economy, invites you to participate in a workshop to discuss some of the key Government proposals for building a thriving agricultural sector outside of the EU.

Leaving the European Union and the Common Agricultural Policy provides us with a once-in-a-generation opportunity to design a domestic policy that fits the needs of the country.

The Government has set out its vision for the future of food, farming and the environment in a consultation paper launched last week. We want to know what you think.

Please let us know if you can attend the event at Hexham Auction Mart on 20th of March 2018.

We recognise this is short notice and hope you can make the time to attend the event.

Starting a Conversation

This marks the start of a conversation, which we want to continue as we make the changes needed to create a world-leading food and farming industry and realise the ambitions set out in the 25 Year Environment Plan, leaving the farmed environment in a better shape than we found it.

This is one in a series of consultation events being held across the country to capture national and local viewpoints. A detailed agenda will be sent to delegates in advance of the event. If you are interested in attending, please register by 16th March 2018.
