Compulsory Purchase, Telecoms & Utilities

August 2019 News

Our Head of Land Agency, David Stout, has recently written a piece for the Farmers Guardian on whether compulsory purchases by telecom and utility companies are threats or opportunities.

The piece featured in the July 12th edition and can be read below:

With the pressure and demand for quicker journeys, better communication and services ever
growing, the impact on the rural sector has never been greater. With that demand comes a
broadening range of complexity, not only due to of the implications from these areas on landowners
and farmers, but also highlighting the need to obtain good professional advice as early in the process
as possible. Such intervention will ensure that those companies driving these schemes will be able to
take full account of the issues applicable to the relevant client, and to act on them whilst also
enabling more detailed negotiations to be undertaken.

Road schemes are often long in the making but will always require prior consultation with those
affected when it is vital that all the relevant factors are made known. Compensation whilst vital,
should always be seen as the last part of the process, rather than the only part. Endeavouring to
prevent any unforeseen impact on clients land or property is a key part of the process and one
where Agents should genuinely believe they can add significant expertise and subsequent benefit in
protecting client’s interests.

Whether these involve the taking of land, laying cables or pipes through or above land,
understanding and applying the full extent of the land owner or occupiers rights is critical in ensuring
that their interests are fully protected.

Many will have heard of the recent changes to the way in which rents on existing or future Telecom
masts are to be negotiated with an apparent dramatic swing in favour of the Telecom companies
arising from the new Electronic Communications Code. Despite this, many of us as agents acting for
affected parties, who often achieve significant rental income from such assets, have challenged not
only the principals of the code but also the effectiveness of it and how it can be applied.

Whilst any approach from a third party can, on the face of it, be unwelcome, these can also bring
opportunities which again can only be developed through good communication and early
negotiation. On the flip side, there can be unforeseen benefits such as the potential removal of
overhead cables, better Broadband links, improved water supplies, new income streams or
development opportunities, to the overall benefit of the landowner or tenant.

In summary, if contacted or notified by any companies wishing to carry out works on your land,
always ensure that you seek early advice from a knowledgeable and experienced Agent. To add
further incentive in the majority of cases, any professional fees will be met by the acquiring
authority or utility company.

Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme Now Open

July 2019 News

DEFRA has announced that Round 2 of the Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme is now open for all farm types, with a total of £15 million available.

The scheme allows applications towards funding for new equipment (as listed in the Countryside Productivity Small Scheme Handbook Annex 3) with the list for Round 2 now more extensive with 26 new items added, and the specification from some existing items updated. The equipment is intended to help achieve technical efficiency, animal health & welfare, resource efficiency or nutrient management.

Grants will provide up to 40% of standard costs of the purchase price on an item. The minimum grant is £3,000 (equivalent of £7,500 spend) to a maximum of £12,000 (equivalent of £30,000 spend).

Applicants for Round 1 funding can submit a new application to receive funding in Round 2, the total value of both applications not being more than £12,000. If a claim was rejected or withdrawn in Round 1, then you can also reapply in Round 2.

Applications for the grant scheme must be submitted by midday on 3rd September 2019.

Applications are to be submitted online but quotes are not required as the scheme is based on standard costs.

The details on your Rural Payments Record must match the details given on the application form, else the application will be rejected.

Items must not be purchased before receiving a grant offer, and items must be purchased before claims can be submitted.

If the application is successful, all items applied for must be bought and must meet the specification listed in Annex 3.

No more than 150 days is allowed between the approval of application and submission of claims.

Successful applicants will then need to provide photos of the items working on their farm.

Round 1 was very popular with more than 3,500 applications worth £23.5 million being successful in receiving grants. Round 2 is likely to also be popular, and those thinking about purchasing equipment should investigate this grant scheme as soon as possible.
