What is ERAMMP?

The Welsh Government’s Environment & Rural Affairs Monitoring and Modelling Programme (ERAMMP) follows on from GMEP (2012-2016) which was set up to monitor Wales’ natural resources and to also evaluate the impacts of the Glastir scheme.  The ERAMMP includes a large scale national field survey of Wales’ natural resources.

What does the ERAMMP survey do?

The ERAMMP survey will map and assess the condition of habitats including woodlands, hedges, headwaters and ponds.  Our scientists will also look at landscape quality, the state of historic features & public rights of way and the diversity of birds & pollinators. We will record short and long-term trends, over the past 40 years in some instances, building on GMEP and other previous surveys. The survey we are conducting in 2021 is not related in any way to compliance or the inspection process for the Basic Payment Scheme, Glastir, or any other Welsh Government Scheme and will not affect your current payments.

When will the survey teams arrive on my land?

The surveys will be carried out between April and September 2021. The table below gives more details.  We will contact you before the survey to make final arrangements and discuss any other issues you might want the surveyors to know about.
