Countryside Stewardship claim deadline extended to June

The deadline for submitting claims has been extended from May 15 2018 to June 15 2018.

 

Farmers who are waiting for their CS agreement offers will be notified ‘soon’ about whether or not their applications were successful, with Natural England aiming to send out the remaining offers by the end of May.

 

Successful candidates will need to accept their agreements and send in a claim by June 15, giving time for changes to be made to maps or other queries to be resolved.

NFU deputy president Guy Smith said: “We have called for and we welcome this short-term fix to an immediate problem. However, in the long-term there are some fundamental issues with CS delivery which need more than these sticking plaster solutions.

 

“Defra Secretary Michael Gove in his public statements seems very aware of these issues, but he now needs to deliver some effective remedies.”

 

The deadline extension does not apply to Environmental Stewardship claims or Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) applications, which must still be submitted by May 15 to avoid late claim penalties.
