Agri-Environment and Climate Change Scheme (AECS) deadline approaches


The deadline for AECS submissions is 12 June 2015.  Scottish Government is asking applicants to remember to complete the forms detailed below and upload these with any AECS submission. 
For the vast majority of applications a farm environmental assessment must be included.   The forms and documents are: 
·        Farm environment table
·        Farm environment map (including diffuse pollution risks field assessment)
·        Farm environment management map
·        If relevant the diffuse pollution steading assessment
For some applications the endorsement form, for options or capital items outwith the spatial targeting zone, may also be required. 
You should upload the supporting documents individually, rather than as one amalgamated document.
For this application round, the accompanying forms can be accepted, on paper, after the application submission deadline, until 30 June. If a form has not been uploaded as part of the application, please forward it to the RPID / SNH contact listed in your submitted application receipt.
If relevant, the guidance and form for vulnerable priority species required to support points for scoring under national priorities can be found at here.
