Landscape Recovery

The Landscape Recovery scheme supports long-term, large-scale projects aiming to improve habitats, biodiversity, water quality and net zero.

The scheme is for farmers and landowners who want to take large-scale approaches to environmental and climate action on their land through long-term projects that produce significant habitat restoration and land use change.

First round of projects announced

The first round of projects aimed to:

  • Recover threatened native species and priority habitats
  • Restore streams and rivers
  • Provide other benefits such as contributing to net zero

Twenty-two projects were announced in autumn 2022. They will receive support for finalising delivery plans and throughout the development and initial implementation phases.
