Streamlined approval process for Rural Priorities applications on nature sites

Farmers, crofters and other land managers can take advantage of a new streamlined approval process for applications to the Rural Priorities scheme, part of the Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP).   

This process is available for projects worth up to £50,000 which will benefit designated natures sites (SSSIs and Natura sites).

Applicants still use the existing online application system but don’t have to wait for the next funding round for it to be considered for approval, as this is done on an ongoing basis.

Anyone considering a Rural Priorities application for managing their designated nature site is advised to discuss this with their local SNH office.
