Countryside Stewardship now open for new applications

Applications for Countryside Stewardship Schemes including Mid-Tier, Higher Tier, Wildlife Offers, Hedgerows & Boundaries, all opened on 18th February 2019.

Because options for flower rich grassland such as GS6 need endorsement and these fields must be on the priority habitat maps we have written a guidance note for Herefordshire Meadows members. Please ask for advice on how to get the best benefits from a scheme on your land

There are 4 strands to Countryside Stewardship in 2019

Mid Tier
Hedgerows & Boundaries Grant
Online Wildlife Offers
Higher Tier

Please read Herefordshire Meadows guidance notes for helpful tips on details of how to include flower rich grassland in your scheme as well as key dates to request application forms and endorsements etc.
