About this project

NPWS Pilot Farm Plan programme

The NPWS Farm Plan Scheme was launched in 2006.  To date over 650 NPWS Farm Plans have been approved and these plans have been instrumental in designing national agri-environment schemes, which have been taken forward on a larger scale under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020. The scheme will continue at a reduced scale, in order to deliver bespoke solutions for conservation and farming, for particular elements as identified by a Steering Committee, in line with Ireland's Prioritised Action Framework.
