Farmers and other land managers can apply for a Countryside Stewardship agreement to help pay for work to address a range of environmental objectives. Each area has a range of features and issues that have been identified as priorities for funding and these are set out within this statement.
Use the statement of priorities document and the targeting priorities map to:
- identify the priority features and issues targeted within this area
- help inform you when considering which options to choose as part of your application
Read the document ‘How to use the targeting priorities map’ before you open the map. Do not try and view the map in your internet browser. Save the map on your computer and open it from there.
Further guidance is available in the Mid Tier manual, Higher Tier manual and list of options, supplements and capital items.
