This is a new Defra funding programme from July 2021 to April 2024 aimed at farmers and land managers in England’s Protected Landscapes (AONBs and National Parks). 

The programme is for one-off farming projects that can demonstrate benefits to climate, nature, people and place.

It is open to farmers, land managers and landowners (including from the private, public and charity sector) with land within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The AONB Partnership is providing support and administering the programme locally.
