The person named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and has received payments in respect of scheme years 2016 - 2018, including GLAS + payments.

All GLAS claims must pass validation checks, including checks against the associated Basic Payment Scheme application, before a payment can be made. In this case, the application has not cleared the GLAS validation checks for 2019 due to an issue relating to commonage parcels on the applicant's 2019 BPS application which are therefore ineligible for GLAS.

The person named has been notified that the commonage claims have been withdrawn from the GLAS contract. Processing of the 2019 payment will be made for the remaining GLAS actions.
