Our three Farm and Rural teams are busy registering farmers and collating information for the new BPS scheme. There is an immense amount of work to complete by the 15th May 2015. Registering is just the first step for the fully online process. Contrary to rumour there are no paper application forms in the post! If you are not yet registered or need help with your mapping, greening requirements or claim please contact us as soon as possible.
Remember all of your entitlements need to be activated.
ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP 2015 CLAIMS
All claims for payments under existing ELS, OELS and HLS must be made on paper forms this year and then online in the future. No automatic payments will be made as in previous years. You should receive a claim form from Natural England and every agreement holder needs to make a claim by 15th May. If you require help with your claim form please contact us as soon as possible.
Remember no claim no payment.
