Countryside Stewardship Agreements - Changes to grant payment method
Posted on 20 September 2017

Currently in each agreement year you must submit a payment claim for your multi-year revenue options. A valid payment claim will receive two grant payments, the advance and final payment. This is split 50/50, into two equal payments (subject to any reductions or penalties).

What is changing?

You will now receive 75% as advance payment and 25% as final payment. This change is taking effect immediately therefore payments for the 2017 scheme year will be paid in this 75/25 split.

Agreement holders will be receiving a letter from Natural England providing an update on these changes.
