Retrieve HEFER

On this page you can check the availability of Historic Environment Farm Environment Record (HEFER) reports from current and previous years. Enter your Single Business Identifier number (9 digit number) in the box below and click Search.

Every Countryside Stewardship applicant will be provided with a HEFER report if one is required. Reports from previous years are valid for up to 3 years, and Rural Payments Agency (RPA) will check the availability of a previous report. If a previous report does not cover all the current land parcels on the holding an additional HEFER report will be requested by RPA.

If you are using a mobile device (smart phone or tablet) and experience difficulties in opening the zipped HEFER file, please try again on a standard computer.
