An application under the 2010 Single Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 10 May 2010. During the processing of the application a number of queries arose, in addition to the necessary re-digitising of a number of parcels. The initial queries were resolved and the re-digitising of parcels completed, thereby allowing payments to issue to the person named on 16 November and 1 December.

However, subsequently another query was highlighted, relating to the eligibility of a number of forestry parcels; this has recently been resolved and, provided no further errors are identified, the outstanding balancing payment due will issue shortly.
