RICS UK Rural Conference 2021 event image

Following Brexit, the UK rural sector is on the way towards a radical policy transformation, with the biggest change in agricultural policy in half a century. Rural chartered surveyors will be at the forefront of this change in addressing the challenges and opportunities ahead to ensure a transition to a sustainable UK agricultural sector, a revitalised UK landscape and a thriving rural economy.

From building back nature and the net zero journey for agriculture, the latest on planning and an essential tax update to the retrofitting of rural buildings and details on the transition to Environmental Land Management and equivalent for the UK regions where available, surveyors must now start building new knowledge and understand their key role in shaping the rural economy.
