Farming Recovery Fund - phase 1 deadline fast approaching

Jamie Burrows' daughters on farm in a safe manner

The 2019 Farming Recovery Fund opened on the 20 September 2019 for those farmers affected by the breach in the Wainfleet Relief Channel on 12 June 2019 and the flash flooding that occurred on 30 July 2019 in a number of the parishes in Swaledale, Arkengarthdale and Wensleydale.

The deadline to claim for these areas is 31 March 2020 at 17:00 hrs (5pm).

Applications must be received by the RPA by this time. This date does not include any questions the RPA may ask on an application that they are processing. Applicants must ensure that they have properly completed the application when they submit by 31 March, answered all the questions, filled in the list of items they are requesting and used the tickbox to remind them of any supporting information they need to send to the RPA.

If members have any issues they should ring the RPA on 03000 200 301.
