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.

CFE Pollinators Event
Farmers will discuss the benefits of nectar and wildflower areas and the importance of bees and other pollinators at a Staffordshire meeting and farm visit.
Nigel Baskerville, CFE county co-ordinator, will describe how farmers can enhance habitats for pollinators by carefully choosing the right Ecological Focus Area options and will outline details of the new Countryside Stewardship Scheme.
