“Everything is yet to be finalised however Greening’ conditions; eligibility; cross-compliance; young farmers and small farmers are all issues that are being continually talked about therefore do need to be considered”.
With many years experience Alistair Fell, Energy and Renewables specialist for H&H Land and Property will take a comprehensive look at all technologies in the renewables sector and the opportunities they present, as well as touching on the difficulties and advantages of the current planning climate. He will look at government legislation being passed and how this impacts on renewables.
