Higher Level Stewardship

The New Forest Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme is England’s largest environmental scheme and restores and enhances the internationally-important habitats of the New Forest.

It runs for 10 years until 2020 and so far it has:

  • Restored over 10 miles of internationally-important habitats for wildlife
  • Supported the historic practice of commoning, which maintains the unique New Forest landscape
  • Worked to identify and protect historic sites across an area the size of 17,000 football pitches
  • Inspired over 13,000 children to cherish the area’s unique environment.

The scheme is a partnership between the Verderers of the New Forest, New Forest National Park Authority, Forestry England and Natural England.
