The 3rd window forGlastir Woodland Creation will open on 30 August 2016 and close at midnight on 14 October 2016. All establishment and Capital Works will need to be completed by 31 March 2018 and final claims submitted by 30 April 2018.
The 4th window forGlastir Woodland Restoration will open on 30 August 2016 and close on 30 September 2016. All restocking and Capital Works will need to be completed by 31 March 2017 and final claims submitted by 30 April 2017.
Given current uncertainty regarding future funding, once the UK leaves the European Union, we cannot, presently, guarantee the offer of income foregone and maintenance payments. As such, the Welsh Government can only guarantee the offer of establishment and associated capital works payments. We will continue to update you when the Welsh Government receives further information concerning future funding."
