Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Due to the applicant's plantation not being up to the required standard, a remedial works letter issued to him in March 2013. Once the works outlined have been completed and the plantation is up to the Forest Service standard, the applicant (or his forester on his behalf) should notify the Forest Service to arrange an inspection. No further payments can issue for this plantation until the site is passed by the Forest Service.
