234 Facilitation funding

Facilitation funding is available on a competitive basis to people or organisations that help farmers and land managers across multiple holdings work together to deliver Countryside Stewardship priorities across landscapes. The members of the group will need to manage an area of land which:

  1. 234.1

        is sufficient in size to deliver scheme priorities set out in the statements of priorities for the area; and

  2. 234.2

        covers at least 2,000 hectares, unless there is an obvious smaller environmental boundary; and

  3. 234.3

        can be spread across at least 4 adjacent holdings.

Applications are assessed by a panel of representatives
