star this property answer text <p>Natural England (NE), rather than the Rural Payments Agency (RPA), currently administer the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. That activity, together with that for Environmental Stewardship, will transfer to the RPA later this year. Around 83% of 2017 Countryside Stewardship claimants have so far received either a full or advance payment. Bridging payments are now being made to the remaining 17% of agreement holders. Performance has fallen well short of expectations on the delivery of 2017 payments. Defra, alongside its delivery bodies, is committed to resolving this as quickly as possible.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>A bridging payment is an advance funded by the UK Exchequer in advance of the full year payment. Customers will receive 75% of the current estimated value of their Countryside Stewardship 2017 claim. When the balance payment is made, the total amount paid is subject to the usual EU co-funding arrangements and is reimbursed from the EU budget; there is therefore no additional cost to the UK Exchequer budget.</p> more like this
