The application window is now open.

You can now submit an application for CS Woodland Creation Grant. If you are applying you must ensure you have submitted a completed application and supporting documents to Natural England Technical Services by midnight on 16 February 2018, read our press release on GOV.UK.

Recent changes to Technical Services means you should now send your application to Natural England Technical Service’s Transactional Hub in Crewe - contact details are below. However, if you send it to another one of Natural England’s Transactional Hubs (in line with Annex 4 of the Woodland Creation Grant Manual 2018) it will be redirected to Crewe.
