• As more information about the new Countryside Stewardship Scheme emerges, a list of management options, the amount you'll be paid for doing them and what management is required is now available here on www.gov.uk.

      By clicking on the option you are interested in, you can also see what tier of the scheme it is available under (Middle and/or Higher), and if it is included in the Farm Wildlife and Pollinator Package.  In a move towards providing evidence of delivery, there is also a section highlighting the record keeping that will be required for each option.

      If you have a species in mind that you would like to help on your farm, and are planning what Countryside Stewardship options to choose, you can see what habitats individual species require on our website here.
