The Hedgerows and Boundaries Grant is now open and available for applications until 28th April 2017.

The maximum £5,000 Grant is available for restoring drystone walls, hedgerows, stone-faced banks and earth banks.

You will not be eligible to apply if your business holds an existing Environmental Stewardship (e.g. ELS/UELS), Countryside Stewardship or English Woodland Grant Scheme that will be live on the 31st July 2017 or if any part of the parcel is in a SSSI.

You can only apply if you have full control of the land (and field boundary) for a minimum of two years from the start of the agreement, or if consent is obtained from the landlord in the form of a countersignature.

Entry into the Hedgerows and Boundaries Grant is competitive and only the highest scoring applications will be awarded and an agreement. However, every application will be assessed and scored so every application is worth submitting.
