Agri-environment applications and agreement management
We are one of the longest established and most experienced agri-environment consultancies in the country. Since 2002, we have secured grants worth many hundreds of thousands of pounds for clients across England, mainly in the south and south west. Black Sheep consultants have submitted hundreds of successful applications to schemes including mid and higher tier Countryside Stewardship (2015 to date); entry and higher level Environmental Stewardship (2005 to 2014); and classic Countryside Stewardship (to 2004); as well as, historically, Wildlife Enhancement Scheme, Habitat Scheme, and the original ESA Scheme.
In addition to working with clients on applications, Black Sheep offers an ongoing agreement management support programme second to none. This includes a menu of services including claim submission, bespoke handbooks and year planners, mock inspections, project management (for capital works), liaising with contractors and everything else associated with agreement delivery.
