Higher Tier covers the more environmentally significant sites, commons and woodlands.The options, supplements and capital items available are more complex than Mid Tier due to the needs of these sites.
You can get help with your application from Natural England, Forestry Commission or Catchment Sensitive Farming officers.
Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) is a project that aims to reduce the amount of water pollution caused by farming operations. In selected areas, CSF officers provide free training and advice on applying for water quality capital items in Mid Tier.
