EU Regulations governing the administration of Basic Payment/Areas of Natural Constraint Schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including in some cases remote sensing (e.g. satellite inspections), are completed before any payments issue.

The 2021 application of the person named was selected for a remote sensing eligibility inspection. This required verification of the position on the ground by means of a field visit which is now complete.

The application of the person named is currently being processed. The inspection results, along with any queries identified, will be communicated to the farmer concerned as soon as they are available. Any payments due to the applicant will issue as soon as this process is complete.
