Completion of Countryside Stewardship Mid Tier and Higher Tier Applications

  • Our team will offer advice and guidance on the current Countryside Stewardship schemes and create an application that will work for your business. 
  • Mid-Tier agreements can include and mixture of capital and parcel-based options. Options can be rotational and non-rotational; agreements last for a 5 year period. 
  • Capital works must be completed within the first 2 years and capital claims can be submitted anytime within that period. Water capital items are available in a Mid-Tier agreement and the £10,000 limit does not apply as it does in Water Capital Only Applications. 
  • Higher-Tier schemes are more environmentally intense and can be the right option for certain sites, such as species rich or environmentally significant.
