• As the first application round for the higher tier of Countryside Stewardship approaches, there have been some concerns over the level of recording and evidence required for management options and capital items.  In response to this, Natural England have recently made some revisions to the online documents, reflecting a streamlining of the record keeping requirements, fixing some errors and improving wording based on stakeholder feedback.  The changes are now live on the CS Grants Finder Tool and associated PDF's.

      The latest PDF's have been date stamped to help identify which is the most recent version, and there are notes in the footer section of the relevant pages flagging up any changes made.
