Deadline approaching for pack requests

Farmers have just days left to submit a request for a Countryside Stewardship Scheme (CSS) mid-tier application pack if they want to apply for an agreement starting on 1 January 2019, according to Strutt & Parker.

The mid-tier CSS package offers payments to farmers for looking after their land in a way that enhances the environment – by conserving and improving biodiversity, reducing flood risk and protecting soil and water quality.

Ed Trotter, farming consultant in the Stamford office of Strutt & Parker, said: “While applicants have until July 31 in which to submit their application, they can only do so if they have requested an application pack by May 31. Requesting a pack does not mean you are obligated to apply, but keeps your options open if you are still considering it."

Mr Trotter said in previous years, farmers have needed to telephone Natural England in order to request their application pack.
