The Countryside Stewardship have just opened applications for grants for new ‘Woodland Creations’. For many of Cheshire’s agricultural businesses, this may well be a good time to bring some woodland areas into agricultural use and will allow farmers to potentially claim further tax relief. The Woodland Creation grant is a stand alone capital grant. If you are a farmer or land manager, you can apply for a 2-year capital works programme to plant and protect young trees. If you qualify, a supporting maintenance grant of £200 per hectare for 10 years may also be available. For further information, please contact Lindsay.Beeston@affordbond.com at our Nantwich office.
