Farming groups given £1.7 million to boost the environment

A fund opens on 1 September for groups of farmers and organisations to bid for cash for large scale environmental projects in their area.

The third round of the Countryside Stewardship Facilitation Fund is open for applications from 1 September to 14 November 2017. The fund encourages landowners to think beyond their own fields, meadows and woodlands and consider how environmental benefits can be achieved over a wider landscape by working on projects together.
