You can now request 2018 Countryside Stewardship application packs. This year’s scheme has been simplified with four options available to apply for as well as the existing Mid and Higher Tier.
Unlike before, all valid applications will be guaranteed funding. The four options are for arable, lowland, mixed farming and upland. The arable offer is an online application which will be open from the 20th February.
There is the option to choose as few as 3 options or up to as many as 14 depending what is applied for. Paper application packs must be requested from Natural England by the 31 May and the closing date for applications is the 31 July.
