Basic Payment, Environmental and Rural Grant Schemes

Basic Payment, Environmental and Rural Grant Schemes


With our well known knowledge and expertise in the agricultural field Cruso & Wilkin keep up to date with all current Basic Payment Scheme and RDPE rural grant schemes. We are regularly in contact with the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) which allows us to deal with any problems our BPS clients may encounter efficiently and correctly. Our professionals are all fellows of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) which gives us an additional platform to stand on and be heard by the RPA and DEFRA. 

As we are all aware the BPS system can be a frustrating and poorly implemented system, with errors being made by the RPA through no fault of claimants. We provide a claim service from start to finish, not only submitting your claim but dealing with incorrect payment queries, re-mapping, land and entitlement transfers, cross compliance and RPA inspections and their findings. 

Cruso & Wilkin over the years have secured millions of pounds worth of rural grants for landowners, tenants and farmers throughout the Eastern Counties. Our successful applicants have secured funding for projects ranging from glamping sites through to mobile cattle handling facilities and satellite steering equipment.

As well as one off grants we are able to offer a comprehensive service on both current and historical land management schemes including Mid Tier and Higher Tier Countryside Stewardship, Entry Level plus Higher Level Stewardship and English Woodland Grant Schemes.
