Woolley & Wallis- Proud supporters of the Countryside Landowners Association

Published: 28/06/2021 By Sarah Phillips

Woolley & Wallis are proud supporters of the Countryside Landowners Association

The Rural Team of Woolley & Wallis are delighted to support the CLA at this year’s Dorset AGM which promises to be an exciting opportunity to join the discussion on what the future holds for the Holme Estate which is actively seeking means of mitigating climate change.  

Jason Lewis of the Woolley & Wallis Rural Team has been working with The Holme Estate for over 35 years in assisting in managing the estate, adapting to changes in legislation and proactively searching for new opportunities to increase yield and value by land diversification.

Nephew to Creech Grange and Tyneham, in the 1928 Estate Duty valuation, The Holme Estate consisted mainly of heath and rough grazing, small farmsteads and cottages and the principal house, then known simply as ‘Holme’.

By the turn of the century, the Holme Estate was looking at ways of mitigating climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Now the farm has planning consent for solar panels and has recently won planning consent for wind turbines, adding to the diversity of the renewable energy generation. The wind farm is predicated on its ability to support serious ecological restoration, including the recreation of 13ha of heathland from exhausted arable farmland. When these projects are up and running, they will deliver more than 30MW of complimentary renewable generation capacity and significantly increase the area, quality, and diversity of heathland in this core area of Dorset.

“The Holme Estate is a clear example of how careful management, with professional guidance can deliver excellent results.  We are proud to be supporting the CLA who and we very much look forward to meeting you all and developing new relationships.” Jason Lewis, Partner, Farm and Rural

Woolley & Wallis share the principles of The CLA which is engaged at every level in championing the rural economy, environment and way of life and are on hand at the AGM to offer advice.
