A review of the land parcels declared by the person name d under the 2013 Single Payment/Disadvantaged Areas Schemes revealed that a number of the land parcels declared by the person named contained ineligible features. Following an appeal from the person named, a visit by a Department official to verify the position was necessary to progress the matter. The outcome of this check resulted in an over- claim in area of greater than 20% being recorded on the lands claimed by the person named. Under the Terms and Conditions of the Single Payment/Disadvantaged Areas Schemes such an over-claim results in no payment being due in respect of 2014.
