The person named applied the Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) Scheme on 15 February 2018.

Under the Terms and Conditions of the 2018 ANC scheme applicants must comply with stocking density requirements, one of which is to retain an annual average stocking density on their lands for the scheme year. The person named has failed to comply with this requirement.

An official from my Department has recently written to the person named advising of this position and requesting him to send in any relevant further relevant information.
