The deadline for submission of final Commonage Management Plans (CMP) for GLAS is 1 September 2017 to facilitate the inclusion of commonage farmers in the third tranche of the Scheme (GLAS 3) in these plans. 

In respect of GLAS 1 and GLAS 2 2016 payments an interim CMP provision was put in place to support payment of the GLAS commonage action pending the submission of final complete CMPs in 2017. 

The following table below sets out (i) the number of commonage farmers approved into GLAS in the first two tranches of the Scheme (GLAS 1 and GLAS 2) and that will be required to complete a CMP and (ii) the number of commonage farmers that have, to date, received a GLAS payment in respect of the 2016 scheme year.

My Department is actively working on outstanding cases with a view to resolving all issues as quickly as possible and as cases pass all the required validation checks they will be processed for payment.
