The person named submitted a Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) application in 2020.
Their BPS application contained a commonage parcel in the townland of Dunloe Upper. As a result of the standard administrative checks carried out by my Department, it was found that the specific commonage parcel was overclaimed.
In that context, a full review of all evidence submitted to support the various applicants claims on the specific commonage parcel in question was required. That review is now being finalised and the Department will be contacting each of the applicants shortly advising them of the outcome of the review. It is envisaged payment will issue to those with a right to claim the commonage parcel in the coming weeks.
In December 2020, payment was made to the named person on the non-commonage portion of his claim.
