Scotland to streamline forestry grant process post-Brexit
Scotland's Rural Economy Secretary, Fergus Ewing, has announced two initiatives to streamline the foresty grants process during a debate today in the Scottish Parliament on Future Rural Policy and Support in Scotland. The initiatives are:-
1) to review the current process for forestry grant applications; and
2) to review the Forestry Grant Scheme to allow more "small landowners" to access financial support for tree planting and woodland creation.
