Conservation Agri-environment schemes

Agri-environment schemes are agreements that pay farmers or landowners to farm or manage their land in an environmentally sensitive manner.

Over the years there have been numerous schemes and two which apply to South West Lakes Trust are the Countryside Stewardship Scheme (now closed) and the Environmental Stewardship Scheme which came into place in 2005.

Countryside Stewardship (CSS) is gradually being phased out and replaced with the Environmental Stewardship (ES) Scheme which is comprised of three tiers - Entry Level Stewardship (ELS), Organic Entry Level Stewardship (OELS) and Higher Level Stewardship (HLS).
