Landowners and Tenants must have control of the land for the full 2 year agreement. Land within a Mid Tier, Higher Tier or UELS Scheme is not eligible (except a Mid Tier Wildlife agreement)
It’s important to plan ahead too. Feilds within a Hedgerow and Boundaries agreement can’t be included in a Mid Tier scheme until the 2 year scheme has finished, so think long term about future subsidies and agri-environment payments.
Deadline for applications – Friday 1st May 2020
Agreement approved – From July (Do not start any work until your agreement approval has come through)
