  • Mapping and registration of land for BPS

Other Grants

We are able to assist clients in England with applications under the three main strands of Countryside Stewardship:-

  • The four Wildlife Offers, for which the application period is 18th February to 31st July;
  • Mid Tier for which the application period is 18th February to 31st July (but for which an application pack must be requested by 31st May)
