Subsidies & Grants
The land is registered on the Rural Land Registry and is sold with the benefit of Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) Entitlements at no additional cost. The Entitlements are currently held by and have been claimed, in 2019 by the vendor, who will endeavour to facilitate transfer to the purchaser in readiness for the 2020 claim. There are currently no active stewardship schemes in place over the land, however the grass margins and field corners included in an expired scheme have been retained for ease of access and hedge cutting.
