Changes include:

  • Increasing amount of storage that can be applied for;
  • Accepting applications for slurry seperators with other storage measures;
  • Accepting applications for covering for existing stores;
  • Adding option for concrete stores;
  • Introducing option for landlords to underwrite grant funding agreements.
