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.

Lancashire farmer Michael Parker has been involved with environmental stewardship at Manor House Farm, Nateby for the last seven years. Please read here to find out more.
Despite the fact that Myerscough College farm manager Roger Leach oversees the day-to-day management of a 700 acre mixed farm, and provides a centre for learning for both the college’s agricultural students and a variety of other groups of learners, he still finds the time to incorporate a number of voluntary measures to provide environmental benefits and habitats for wildlife and birds. Read how he does this here.
