Countryside Stewardship (CS) Programme - Approved
Defra has introduced important new fencing guidelines for the Countryside Stewardship (CS) programme. These will provide funding for the use of metal fencing alongside existing treated timber, this applies to CS schemes from the 2022 application round for agreements starting in 2023. From early February this year farmers can claim up to £7.47 per meter, subject to several other conditions, such as post diameter and fence height.
Since the banning of CCA (Copper Chrome Arsenic) timber treatment in 2006, farmers and landowners have complained about the longevity of timber fence posts, and until now, CS provisions for fencing and netting have insisted on the use of softwood timber “that is fully peeled, coated with wood preservative and pressure treated, or treated with an approved preservative” only. Effectively, Defra and the RPA have banned alternative materials including galvanised steel.
With the support of organisations including NFU, FWAG, CLA and RSPB McVeigh Parker were able to show Defra that farmers are looking for longer-lasting and better value options such as the award-winning Triple X fencing system which has stormed the market since its introduction in 2014 and comes with a 30-year guarantee. Following extensive discussions with Defra, Secretary of State George Eustice has agreed to widen the choice available to farmers and landowners. Now farmers have a proper and fair choice. Instead of spending time mending and replacing old fencing, they have the option to choose a guaranteed 30-year fence which is easier to install and requires minimal maintenance.
