Rural Land Management & Compliance
Basic Payment Scheme and moving away from Direct Payments
At Williams Round we have developed significant experience of the Basic Payment Scheme and the required green, cross compliance and statutory management regulations required. We offer advice on the payment scheme itself, deal with clients’ annual claims, RPA appeals, Entitlement transfers and the registration of land on the Rural Land Register. We will be able to lead our clients through the whole Brexit process and advise on the new time-limited initiatives which will be offered as the payments progressively reduce towards 2027.
Cross Compliance Regulations
We can help bring clarity to the various Statutory Management Regulations, Greening Regulations and Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition rules associated with the Basic Payment Scheme.
Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZ)
We offer advice from the basics of the regulations for holdings falling within the regulatory areas up to the preparation and updating of annual records and dealing with inspections and appeals.
Having been with us now since 2006, Jo has played a key role in the management of our historic park and conversion of farm buildings to a successful commercial business. She has dealt with various lease negotiations, compulsory purchase claims and advises on the day to day management of the farm and wider landscape. Her natural ease, charm and positive approach, together with her obvious efficiency make for a delightful working companion. Her advice and support has been enormously helpful.
