It is that time of year again where we look to Basic Payment Scheme applications and opportunities that might arise through Countryside Stewardship Schemes.

Dates to remember:


  • Online applications go live from Thursday 18th March.
  • The submission deadline this year is Monday 17th May.
  • *REMEMBER* You can now transfer land and entitlements via the online system – no need for a paper chain!


  • Application window opens Tuesday 9th February. Start downloading your application packs now to give yourself plenty of time to draft your application for 2022.

The RPA have produced a really useful table which outlines when application windows open and those all-important submission deadlines.
