CFE Local Priority Plans

The CFE Local Liaison Group (LLG) produces a Local Priority Plan (LPP).

This LPP is based on environmental issues relevant to the area and complements the national CFE messages and priorities. The LPP is produced by the local coordinator by drawing on local partner expertise. The LLP will help the LLG decide which habitats or species and water quality issues to target, so it can tailor activity accordingly.

This process of developing the LPP is farmer led and simple to accomplish. The LPPs are also working documents, and will be adapted as appropriate.
