Where There's Muck There's Money

The government has announced a new Slurry Store Grant, initially targeted at those sites which will deliver the most environmental impact. Justin Stevenson, Senior Planning Consultant at The Rural Planning Co gives an overview as to who will be interested in this grant and what the implications are from a planning perspective.
In June the government announced a grant to fund up to 50% of the cost to upgrade, replace or build a new slurry store for Pig, Dairy and Beef farmers. This will open to applications this autumn. There will be multiple rounds as it is expected that the first and probably the next few rounds will be oversubscribed.
