Sustainable Farming Scheme: Updated Timeline

A new timeframe for introducing the Sustainable Farming Scheme has been confirmed today by Climate Change and Rural Affairs Secretary Huw Irranca-Davies.

Key Points

  • Confirmation that the Basic Payment Scheme will be available in 2025
  • Proposed Sustainable Farming Scheme transition period will start in 2026

Speaking at a press conference at Sealands Farm in Bridgend, the Cabinet Secretary emphasized that the change in timings reflects his commitment to meaningful engagement with the farming sector.

Existing rural investment schemes, including small grants, will continue to support infrastructure changes. Additionally, the Welsh Government plans to develop a new landscape scale scheme building on previous collaboration initiatives.
