Closing date for Lough Carra Life Project Agri-Environment Payments Scheme

Date: 06-01-2023

Lough Carra LIFE is a five-year project led by Mayo County Council which will work towards improving ecosystem resilience and reducing nutrient pollution in Lough Carra.

The project will take place in the Lough Carra catchment, and will work with farmers, other landowners, and local community groups to improve the lake habitat, along with other habitats and species in the area.

The project aims to develop a bespoke Agri-environment Payments Scheme specifically adapted for farmers in the Lough Carra catchment.

Consultations with farmers are ongoing, to ensure that the scheme is locally adapted, practical, and results focused, as well as properly and fairly funded.

The Lough Carra LIFE Project will accept expressions of interest for the 2023 scheme, until 17:00 on Tuesday, January 17th 2023.
