Laurence Gould Partnership Ltd

Laurence Gould Partnership is one of the best-known names in the rural consultancy sector. Our aim is to assist our clients to overcome the challenges they face; helping them grow and expand their farming businesses.

In order for us to achieve this, we work closely with our clients to ensure we understand their aims and objectives. This provides us with an insight as to how the business should move forward for the future.

We have been extremely successful in many grant applications under the three main funding schemes. Below are example projects we have carried out to date:

• Leader Scheme- funding for diversification projects such as an equestrian all-weather arena, food processing equipment e.g. juice processing, log cabin expansions and introductions. Tourist projects include: Glamping huts/Pod and a building conversation into Hostel accommodation. We have also obtained funding for Pluk-o-Trak harvesting machines for Top Fruit Producers.

• Growth Programme-diversifications include start-up wedding venues and expansions, swimming pools, children`s activity centres and play areas, log cabin projects, fresh produce processing equipment/crop grading machines.

• Countryside Productivity Scheme- Controlled Atmospheric storage for top fruit storage. With a recent success in a large expansion project to introduce 4 new CA stores, we understand how these projects should be structured to secure the necessary funding.

A key input to innovation projects is planning permission. Laurence Gould have obtained the necessary planning permissions to enable physical development to go ahead, thereby offering a complete service from concept to reality.. With this specialist experience, this allow us as a company to provide all the services you require from the initial project idea, through to obtaining planning permission, securing grant funding and then managing the financials of the new business venture/enterprise.

We also offer a Farm Business Management service which involves regular meetings to discuss the performance of a client`s businesses, to set new targets and produce financial forecasts and budgets. We aim to seek and develop new opportunities where possible and introducing new affective strategies to improve the profitability of our client` businesses.
