CSS Grant Payments

“Farmers who are entered into Countryside Stewardship Mid-Tier, Water Capital Grant or Hedgerow Boundary Grant Schemes are reminded to take plenty of photographs during and after undertaking any capital works under your schemes.

If you have already completed works and have no “during” photographs, invoices evidencing the work may be accepted instead, but photos are preferred. It is also worth noting that Natural England will not process any claim until the work has been paid for, and evidence of this can be requested if inspected”.
