Exmoor could become test-bed for national policy post–Brexit

A proposal has been announced for sustaining and enhancing Exmoor’s farmed landscapes and communities post-Brexit.

The proposed ‘funding and branding’ model shows a clean break with the traditional EU models and refocuses Exmoor position as a brand of the future to maximise revenues.

The proposals outline a simpler, more integrated and local policy, incentivising public benefits provided by the countryside.

They were developed by Exmoor National Park Authority, backed by the Exmoor Hill Farming Network, conservationists and local public bodies.
