Land-based business voucher scheme

There are 250 vouchers on offer for land-based businesses in the old Eden and South Lakeland District Council areas.

This voucher scheme supports land-based businesses in the Westmorland & Furness area to access advice to help:

  • overcome the challenges facing them and respond positively to opportunities, for example through cost reductions, productivity enhancements and growth
  • respond to the phasing out of the Basic Payment scheme, as well as the wider challenges and opportunities, including diversification

The term ‘land based’ traditionally relates to farming and industries connected to the land and environment, including, for example horticulture, forestry, conservation, landscaping, equine (horses), country sports, land management and agricultural contracting. It can also include some support services to these activities and some food production. If you’re not sure please contacts to check.
