The Rural Payments Agency (RPA) says it is on target to pay 95% of 2017 Environmental Stewardship payments and 95% of 2018 Countryside Stewardship payments by the end of July 2019.  On Environmental Stewardship, the RPA is prioritising paying payments for previous scheme years.  They recently started processing 2018 Environmental Stewardship advance claims, however, these cannot be processed if a previous year’s claim remains outstanding.

Remember the deadline for ordering a Mid-Tier application pack and contacting your CSF officer about water quality grants is today 31st May.
