'THE ROCK REVIEW'

WORKING TOGETHER FOR A THRIVING AGRICULTURAL TENANTED SECTO

REPORT - OCTOBER 2022

As many of you will be aware, in January this year, the Government commissioned 'an independent review dedicated to looking at how tenant farmers and tenancies can be better supported as farming in England is reformed to be more sustainable'.

Chaired by Baroness Rock, the objectives of the Tenancy Working Group were:

'to provide independent advice to include:

  • how Defra can use scheme design to facilitate participation of and benefits to tenant farmers in new Government ELMs and related schemes
  • consideration of what policy initiatives will secure the long-term sustainability of tenant farming in England
  • how best to foster positive and long-term relationships between tenants and landlords
  • providing advice on ways to minimise any potential loss of land from the tenanted sector to avoid damaging its resilience; and
  • consideration of why it might be necessary to look for new legislative or regulatory powers in the future'.

The Working Group has today published their Report (13 October) and you can access this at The Rock Review: summary and recommendations - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

The Government will now consider the recommendations submitted in the Report.

We will be covering this as part of our Autumn Conference on 3 November in our general Members' update session in the afternoon.  If you wish to book a place for the Conference, the booking link is below:
