Environment & Land Use Hub

Almost 70 per cent of the land across Yorkshire and the North East is managed by the region's farmers.

They are charged with caring for a wide range of natural assets such as soil and water and keeping their land in good environmental condition. Carrying out this management role can be challenging, with a complex raft of rules and regulations governing many farm operations.

They also have to think about other management issues such as public access and planning legislation.

Here, the regional environment and land use team provides a one-stop-shop of information and advice on everything from agri-environment schemes and water management to planning and achieveing net zero.
