star this property answer text <p>Payments under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) are not targeted at owners or operators of grouse moors. Those who have such land at their disposal (which in many cases on moorland will be a tenant rather than a landlord) may claim direct payments, subject to meeting scheme rules, provided the land is used for agricultural production or is maintained in a condition suitable for production. Agri-environment payments are made to those who enter into agreements to deliver environmental benefits, and across the uplands tenants and commoners are the principal beneficiaries. The Rural Development Programme also supports various socio-economic projects but not any specifically relating to the owners and operators of grouse moors. We do not systematically record whether those meeting the conditions to benefit from CAP schemes are also owners or operators of grouse moors.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Owners or operators of grouse moors may of course be eligible for other grants or subsidies, as are other businesses.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
