The above named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and received all payments in respect of scheme year 2016.

GLAS participants with the LESS action are required to submitted an annual return for the action. The required form was issued to the person named. Completed forms were to be returned to the Department by 27th October 2017. The Department issued a number of reminders. The requirement was not fulfilled for this case.

The Department has now terminated this GLAS contract due to non compliance. Both the applicant and his advisor have been informed of the option to appeal this decision to the Agriculture Appeals Office.
