Question:

390.

Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 1 with a contract commencement date of 1 October 2015 and has received full payments for scheme years 2015 and 2016. The 85% 2017 advance, including GLAS+ has also been paid.

The Commonage Management Plan is outstanding for this application. The completion and submission of these Plans is a matter between the GLAS participant and their Commonage Advisor. I have made enquiries and I have been advised that an Advisor has been allocated to complete this Plan. The applicant may wish to contact his Commonage Advisor directly.
