Higher Level Stewardship Agreements

As the HLS funding says, these examples of National Trust enrichment are quite indicative of how the conservation industry fills its boots with a subsidy purportedly applicable to the agricultural community. However, it turns out that this is an unusually different HLS across the small area of Heiderestauration latauration that had taken place in a local nature reserve (NRL) in North Yorkshire. Foxglove Covert NRL is located on 38 hectares of Ministry of Defence land on the Catterick Training Area (21). The HLS agreement was guaranteed in March 2010 for a total amount of 584,110, an incredibly high amount, taking into account an annual payment per hectare over the 10 years of the HLS contract (AG00299506 (20)). With more than 1,500, it is well above all management options available under the HLS system (22). It is also surprising to note that after the first year of the agreement (20) 307,334 and until this year, 487,273 were paid (23). Land-based payments would have meant a fairer payment for the duration of the agreement, so that, in the circumstances of these units, a large capital effort was proposed at the beginning, perhaps for a building. I searched the NRL site only to find that its educational centre was built in 2002 (24) and that the construction of this modern visitor centre via Wildspace! In 2000, the Commission funded a NRL grant program under the Big Lottery Fund, managed by English Nature (25). Grazing is not the only cause of HLS-induced damage in yeast watering areas. I was alerted to a serious incident in March 2012 at Allerthorpe Common, near Pocklington, East Yorkshire, by the Discussion Forum Reptiles – Amphibians of the UK (RAUK). Chris Dawson asked if anyone else had witnessed the devastating evacuation of reptiles in what he considered to be an important habitat for reptiles (51): heavy machinery, excavators, etc., were introduced and large areas were cleared to the ground, so that the bare earth was compacted with tire tracks! Some very small islands have remained in these bald areas, but there are very few.

Communications have been published saying that the work seems drastic, but the heather will grow back and it was done with the full support of Natural England. How can they justify this destruction of habitat? Unlike ELS and OELS, entry into the Shceme is discretionary. Applications are subject to an individual assessment to assess the compliance of plans with environmental priorities established in this area. Once an application has been successfully submitted, 10-year contracts are developed and payments are made every six months. The amount of payments depends on the nature of the work introduced in the scheme. For more information on the higher level scheme, see Defra`s HLS brochure.

on Organic Entry Level StewardshipStill have questions about environmental responsibility? Then visit the FWi forums – we partnered with ADAS to get answers to every request or problem you have with environmental management systems. This is very similar to the entry-level system, except that it only covers ecological surfaces. Most options are the same for ELS and OELS, but some of them are not suitable (p.B. reduced artificial fertilizer inputs) are omitted. Like ELS, the agreements last 5 years, but the OELS land is paid at 60 USD per hectare. It is possible to combine the OEL with regular ELS on farms with a mixture of organically and conventionally cultivated land.
