Countryside Stewardship Projects

The Countryside Stewardship (CS) scheme has been introduced, replacing Entry- and Higher-Level Stewardship schemes. OpenSpace has vast experience in delivering Higher Level Stewardship projects for a number of farms and  landowners. The CS scheme is available for land managers to conserve their environment through activities such as:

  • Conserving and restoring wildlife habitats
  • Flood risk management
  • Woodland creation and management
  • Reducing widespread water pollution from agriculture
  • Keeping the character of the countryside
  • Preserving features important to the history of the rural landscape
  • Encouraging educational access

Although OpenSpace cannot guarantee the success of any one application, we can direct you to further information on the CS scheme here.

If you have any CS projects, then call us on 01228 711841 or email We will be happy to help.
