The person named applied for the 2018 Areas of Natural Constraints Scheme on 15 May 2018.

Under the terms and conditions of the 2018 scheme, participants in the scheme are required to notify the Department of farm-to-farm movements of sheep.  In this case, the required notification was not completed and payment has thus not issued. 

Officials from my Department are in contact with the person named with a view to obtaining the outstanding information required in order to facilitate payment.
