STEPS - Severn Trent Environmental Protection Scheme

The Severn Trent Environmental Protection Scheme (STEPS) provides grants up to £5000 for infrastructure improvement and land management changes in Severn Trent Water (STW) target areas. 

STEPS aims to protect and improve watercourses and the wider environment by supporting improvements which are above and beyond good agricultural practice. Download a STEPS leaflet.

The scheme is voluntary and funded by us. It's being supported by our dedicated local agricultural advisors who can provide one to one help with the application process. Please note that grants are awarded via a scoring system.

Applicants demonstrating a clear water quality benefit to the issues of concern in that area and who have engaged with our local agricultural advisor are most likely to be successful.
