Agricultural Lore - Autumn 2020

Welcome to this Autumn edition of Agricultural Lore.

It was with relief earlier this month that we saw the long-awaited Agriculture Bill finally make its way onto the statute books; the British Agriculture Policy finally launched, albeit mostly in a fledgling form. There is plenty that remains to decide further down the line, but we at least have the structure and parameters now. Our latest articles on the new Act can be found below however there have been plenty of other developments. After the near paralysis of the beginning of coronavirus last March, the Courts are now back up and running and in this edition of Agricultural Lore we highlight a number of interesting decisions, as well as updating on possession proceedings, opportunities for tax planning and employment options for rural businesses.
