In 2005, the person named established 36.39 Single Payment Entitlements to the value of €5,588.41 and received payment under the 2005 and 2006 Single Payment Scheme.The person named did not declare any land on a Single payment application form during the years 2007, 2008 or 2009. One of the requirements of the Single Payment scheme is that entitlements must be used in full at least once during a 3 year period, otherwise unused entitlements are permanently lost to the National Reserve.
A letter issued to the person named on 25 January 2010 informing her that due to non usage her entitlements had now expired and were being lost to the National Reserve. She was offered an opportunity to appeal this decision to my Department and include any extenuating circumstances which may have prevented her submitting Single Payment application forms as required.
To date no appeal has been received by my Department.
