An application under the Single Payment Scheme/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme was received from the person named on 13 May 2010. This application was selected for a Ground Eligibility and Cross Compliance inspection.
During the course of the Ground Eligibility inspection discrepancies were found which resulted in the claimed area for the Single Payment Scheme of 21.13 ha being reduced to a payable area of 6.54 ha. As the total entitlements held are 22.12 and the difference between the area claimed and the area found is greater than 50%, no payment was to issue for 2010.
The person named was informed of this decision on 17 January 2011. They were also advised of their right to seek a review of this decision and to have the outcome of any such review appealed to the Independent Agriculture Appeals Office. An application for review has been received and is currently under consideration and the person named will be notified of the outcome as soon as it is available.
