We have a maintained a close working relationship with Natural England and will endeavor to provide advice that will best suit the individual business and deliver the environmental outcomes required.
We have significant experience of the full range of Environmental Stewardship Schemes including Organic, Upland, Common land, ELS, HLS.
Each holding is assessed individually before making our recommendations on the schemes, options, and management that would be best suited to our clients specific needs.
We offer continuing advice and support to new and existing agreement holders in the form of day to day scheme management up to and including the management of large capital works projects including the drafting of specialist work tenders, overseeing contractors and securing up to 100% grant funding.
Jo has dealt with our Basic Payment Claims, Agri-Environment Schemes and lease arrangements for a number of years. She has been able to guide us through the maze of DEFRA/RPA/NE red tape without any fuss. She has completed Farm Environment Plans and successfully obtain a Higher Level Countryside Stewardship Scheme against all the odds and successfully sorted out our complicated Basic Payment claims at around a third of the cost we were previously charged by a local auctioneer.
