Under the 2013 Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, applicants were required to maintain a minimum stocking density on their holding of 0.15 livestock units per forage hectare for a minimum retention period of seven consecutive months, in addition to maintaining an annual average of 0.15 livestock units calculated over the 12 months of the scheme year. Payment under the 2013 Scheme has not issued to the person named as their holding has not satisfied the Scheme minimum stocking density requirements. No payment is due to the person named in respect of the 2013 Single Payment Scheme as the person named does not hold any payment entitlements.

No payment is due to the person named in respect of the 2013 Grassland Sheep Scheme as the person named did not submit a Sheep Census return to cover this period.
