An application under the Single Payment Scheme/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme was received from the person named on the 14 May 2010. This application was selected for a Ground Eligibility and Full Cross Compliance inspection. The inspection process is complete and the results have now been processed.
During the course of the Ground Eligibility inspection discrepancies were found with the following parcels H19308039, H20918005, H20918010 and H20918022 due to inadequate deductions for scrub and farm road. The claimed area for the Single Payment Scheme of 18.91ha was reduced to 12.86ha. As there is an over declaration of over 20% no payment will be made under the Single Payment Scheme/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme for the year 2010. The person named was informed of these findings on the 14th October 2010 and of his right to seek a review of this decision within 21 days and of his right to appeal the outcome of any such review to the Independent Agriculture Appeals Office.
A field inspection on the REPS application was also carried out on this farm. The result of the inspection in being processed and my officials will be in contact with the person named when the process has been completed.
