Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted a 2019 Basic Payment/Areas of Natural Constraints Schemes application on the 26th April 2019. EU Regulations governing the administration of these schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including, in some cases, remote sensing (i.e. satellite) inspections, be completed before any payments issue.

The application of the person named was selected for a Remote Sensing land eligibility inspection. This inspection has now been completed and the results have been processed to finalisation. Payment due under the Areas of Natural Constraints Scheme will issue shortly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
