Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The following table sets out on a county by county basis, the number of commonages under GLAS 1 and GLAS 2 where an approved GLAS Commonage advisor has been assigned and also the number of commonages where no advisor has been assigned. 

The commonages that have yet to be assigned an advisor are currently being dealt with by GLAS Officials with the intention of appointing advisors as soon as possible.  The Department has contacted the GLAS shareholders on these commonages directly to facilitate the processing of their 2016 GLAS payments.

An interim solution in the form of interim Commonage Management Plans has been put in place to facilitate the inclusion of GLAS 3 participants in the process, with full Commonage Management Plans to be submitted by September 2017.
