RPA Podcast episode 8

Welcome to the eighth episode of The RPA Podcast.

In our latest episode, Danielle Bragg from the RPA Grants Service Team discusses the range of grants currently available to farmers, as well as some new opportunities on the horizon. We also discuss each of the specific grants in detail and provide helpful information on the application process.

Later in the episode, we hear from Jim Bubb, from Shropshire Petals Farm in Newport, about his successful application to the Farming Transformation Fund and the ways in which this has benefitted his business and transformed the ways of working of his business.

Finally, Rachael Dale from Geospatial Services at RPA, talks us through the new online Rural Land Changes service that streamlines scheme applications by accelerating mapping updates. We also discuss plans for the old RLE1 form and any actions farmers need to take to prepare for this change.
