The person named submitted a 2018 Basic Payment/Areas of Natural Constraint Schemes application on the 23rd March 2018. EU Regulations governing the administration of these schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including in some cases remote sensing (i.e. satellite) inspections, be completed before any payments issue.

The application of the person named was selected for a Remote Sensing eligibility inspection. This inspection has now been completed and the results have been processed to finalisation. Payments due under the Areas of Natural Constraints Scheme will issue shortly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
