Under the 2010 Grassland Sheep Scheme, farmers were required to:

maintain ewes;

complete the Sheep Census return; and

submit the SPS application form by the closing date of 17th May 2010.

While an application under the 2010 Single Payment Scheme and other area-based schemes was received from the person named on 12 May 2010, following validation it was found that while the person named had submitted the Sheep Census Return, as required, no breeding ewes were declared on the Census Return. Therefore, no payment is due under the Grassland Sheep Scheme to the person named.
