COUNTRYSIDE STEWARDSHIP – NATURAL ENGLAND ENCOURAGES NEW APPLICATIONS

Details of the new Countryside Stewardship are still unclear. The deadline for new applications is the end of September but it is not clear if there is sufficient time for applications to be received and processed by the end of November when the Autumn Financial Statement takes place. A spokesperson said “EU funded schemes are vitally important to driving investment in our rural economy and delivering environmental benefits. There is no justifications not to continue with these schemes up until the UK leaves the EU” The statement continues to say they are encouraging members to make applications as this is important to wildlife habitats and the planting of hedgerows must continue.
