The Higher Tier element of Countryside Stewardship covers the most environmentally significant sites, commons and woodlands.
The deadline for requesting an application pack was 9 March 2018. You must complete and return your application by 13 April 2018. If you haven’t requested a pack, you wont be able to apply this year.
The options, supplements and capital items available are more complex than Mid Tier as they reflect the needs of these environmentally significant sites. An adviser from Natural England or the Forestry Commission will help you with your Higher Tier agreement.
