The person named submitted an application under the 2017 BPS on 6 May 2017. 

As part of the process of determining land eligibility, parcels declared by the person named on his 2017 BPS application have been identified as having been burned outside of the permitted timeframes. 

Accordingly, such lands are not eligible for the purpose of a BPS payment and this has created an over claim on the named person's BPS application. 

The person named was notified by my Department about the burned land parcel(s) in question, and has submitted an appeal. This appeal is being examined  with a view to an early resolution.  Should additional information be required, my Department will contact the person named directly.
