Payments under the 2019 Areas of Natural Constraint Scheme are due to commence this week.

Payment under the Scheme can only issue where a number of scheme requirements have been met.  One such requirement is the maintenance of an annual average of 0.15 livestock units calculated over the 12 months of the calendar year.   Once the person name has met this stocking requirement and all other scheme requirements have been complied with, payment will issue as soon as possible.
