Following on from my previous update, the first year of the National Park Authority’s new Traditional Boundary Scheme (TBS) is now completed.
Approximately £92,700 in grant aid was provided through TBS agreements, resulting in:
- 3670 square metres of drystone wall restored
- 3785 metres of hedgerow planted/gapped up
- 30 metres of hedgerow coppiced
- 210 metres of hedgerow laid
We’re still keen to help restore and sustain traditional boundaries which help manage stock, provide habitat and connecting corridors for wildlife, mark traditional field patterns and are such an important element of the North York Moors landscape.
The application deadline is 6 June 2014. All work grant aided this financial year will need to be completed by mid-December 2014.
