The person named commenced REPS 4 in August 2009 and received payments for the first four years of their contract. REPS 4 is a measure under the current Rural Development Programme, 2007-2013, and is subject to EU Regulations which require detailed administrative checks on all applications to be completed before payments can issue. The administrative checks in this case have now been completed and the Year 5 payments have been authorised for payment and will issue shortly.
