An application under the 2010 Single Payment Scheme/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme was received from the person named on 27 April 2010. Following initial processing of the application, the person named was found to have dual-claimed a number of land parcels with other scheme applicants. In keeping with standard procedure, all parties concerned were written to; in response, by letter dated 28 September, the person named indicated that he did not have the right to claim the land parcels in question. Following re-calculation of the area in question, the person named was found not eligible for the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, as the over declaration exceeded 20%, as per the Terms and Conditions of the Scheme.
As the applicant's determined land after the deduction for the dual-claims is greater than the number of payment entitlements he holds under the Single Payment Scheme, the dual claims deductions will not impact on his payments under that Scheme.
