An error was identified in relation to an aspect of the area being claimed by the person named under the 2012 Single Payment Scheme. However, payment has already been made (advance on 16 October 2012 and balance on 3 December 2012) insofar as possible at this stage. In addition, my Department has recently been in contact with the applicant regarding the outstanding issue and a response from the applicant is awaited. The issue relating to compliance with permitted nitrates limits cannot be determined until the aspect referred to above has been resolved.
The person named was approved for participation in the 2011 Agri-Environment Options Scheme with effect from the 1 September 2011. No payments have issued to date. LPIS parcels and areas validated by the Single Payment Scheme are used for the purpose of effecting Agri- Environment Options Scheme Payments. During a cross-check with the Land Parcel Identification System, a query arose in respect of land parcels declared for 2011 which requires digitisation of the areas concerned. The person named has been contacted by Single Payment Scheme in relation to this issue. The AEOS application will be processed further upon receipt of a response from the person named.
