Natural England has produced a set of targeting maps to increase the environmental benefits delivered through Higher Level Stewardship. These maps will help secure the most appropriate management in geographic areas where environmental outcomes are likely to be greatest. The targeting maps are the first systematic joining together of information on biodiversity, landscape, natural resource protection, public access and historic interests.
HLS continues to be a competitive scheme and each HLS application will be assessed on its merits. Applications that demonstrate good environmental management for target area or theme features are the most likely to be successful.
