After a productive 2021, with the changes to agri-environment schemes and subsidiaries, the launch of a new agency service, escalating property and land prices, the rural chartered surveyor Madeleys has ambitious plans for 2022.
At the end of one of its most successful years, Madeleys announced the offer of a free farm audit to anyone interested in following a road map for the ‘future of farming’ – as set out by the Secretary of State, George Eustice, at the Oxford Farming Conference.
As the first parts of the Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) are launched, Madeleys’ Much Wenlock office will be hosting information evenings every other month from February 2022, to deliver rural economy developments to clients. During these evenings, presentations will also be given by guest speakers such as Tilhill Forestry.
“At Madeleys, our aim is to add value and maximise the potential for all our client’s rural property assets and this is now the time to review. We have had an extremely successful and busy year assisting our clients to achieve their goals and maximise the potential from their rural property,” said Paul Madeley, of Madeley Chartered Surveyors.
Madeleys have also had great success with planning applications, in the past year including but not limited to the conversion of agricultural buildings to residential occupation, under Class Q; the diversification projects to include holiday let conversions and log cabins; and the erection of farm buildings to include grain stores, livestock buildings and general-purpose agricultural buildings.
