  1. Really interesting.
    Did Michael Gove have anything to say re long term support for new conservation / wooded areas? If the long term capacity to earn a living from agricultural land is diminished, isn’t this land in danger of being snapped up by developers?

    1. He was a trifle vague on the detail – perhaps because of the number of ‘green fronts’ he was advancing with perhaps lack of depth on the deeper issues.
      Conservation covenants https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/conservation-covenants are being looked elsewhere but developers will always be snapping – driven by demand https://england.shelter.org.uk/support_us/campaigns/build_more_social_housing and govt polices seeking to house the expanding population.
