Environmental Options

From 1st January 2016 the current Environmental Stewardship scheme in England (with its ELS and HLS agreements) will be succeeded by a new programme that will incorporate the best elements of Environmental Stewardship, Catchment Sensitive Farming and the England Woodland Grants Scheme.

Work is already well in hand to develop the details of the new Countryside Stewardship scheme. It is likely that many of the options/mixes described here will form part of the next scheme/s from 2016. Meanwhile, it’s business as usual for the ELS and HLS agreement holders who are already signed up to Environmental Stewardship.
