Defra continues to allow "dual use" on commons

Defra Ministers have decided to maintain their current policy of allowing ‘dual-use’ arrangements for all existing Environmental Stewardship agreements. This means that two different beneficiaries can receive support under two separate CAP schemes for the same piece of land. Ministers consider that dual use is important for ensuring the maximum benefit from agri-environment agreements and are minded to allow dual use to continue on new schemes as well. A final decision on dual-use within NELMS will be announced, shortly.

Please see letter from Mike Rowe, Deputy Director for Sustainable Land and Soils, about the recent Ministerial decisions on continuation of dual use of land
