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.

We are a returning client of Butler Sherborn and we would highly recommend them if you’re looking to sell your property. The two properties we sold with BS were very different, but the BS team have always been extremely professional, approachable and friendly. And their communication skills are second to none! Thank you again!
