Natural England has confirmed arrangements for the submission of annual claims for Countryside Stewardship and Environmental Stewardship which must be submitted by 15th May 2017.
Countryside Stewardship revenue claims will need to be submitted online via the Rural Payments service which is expected to go live from early April 2017.
Capital claims for this scheme will also be via the online system but can be made throughout the year.
Environmental Stewardship claims must be submitted on paper forms which Natural England has started to post out to the main contact for the agreement.
