Farmers urged to sign petition opposing new NVZs

Farmers attending this week’s Royal Welsh Winter Fair were being surveyed over their views on the Welsh Government’s NVZ proposals and the impact on the industry.

Designation would see restrictions placed on a significant area in Pembrokeshire, a number of smaller areas in Anglesey and Carmarthenshire, together with an extension to the NVZ area in Clwyd.

 

Alternatively, the Welsh Government consultation which closes on Friday, December 23, could see a whole territory approach being adopted which would see the whole of Wales being designated as an NVZ.

 

NFU Cymru teamed up at the fair with Nicola Savage, who helps run the family’s agricultural contracting business at Hayscastle, in Pembrokeshire, to highlight the potential impact of the proposals.

 

She has started a petition in opposition to the Welsh Government’s plans and before the fair opened had collected more than 330 signatures.

 

“Nicola’s story is important because it highlights the wider ramifications of these proposals,” said NFU Cymru president, Stephen James.

 

“The shockwaves felt by the industry will have a ripple effect that will also affect agricultural contractors and the wider rural economy.

 

“We want the Welsh Government to think long and hard about the detrimental impact of these proposals. The environmental outcomes could be better delivered using an alternative approach and we would urge as many people as possible to make their voice heard by filling in the survey.”
