Every CS applicant must have the opportunity for a full completed HEFER Response this year on all land parcels and for the correct Tier. *Any change in tier or land parcels requires a new HEFER Request.

Natural England must carry out different actions depending on the result:

- 'The SBI could not be found'. Please check and try again.            A HEFER Request must be commissioned by NE.

- None of the consultees completed a PAID Response                   A new HEFER Request must be commissioned by NE. DO NOT download and use the previous year's HEFER.

- Only some consultees completed a PAID Response                     Download the Maps and Data but use the Response for the area under the PAID consultee only*. A new HEFER must be commissioned by NE.

- All consultees show as completing a PAID Response                   Download and use the Maps and Data, as no new HEFER Response is necessary unless the tier or field parcels have changed.
