The person named was approved for participation in the 2011 Agri-Environment Options Scheme (AEOS 2) with effect from 1 September 2011 and full entitlements have issued in respect of the 2011 and 2012 Scheme years.

Under the EU Regulations governing the Scheme and other area-based payment schemes, a comprehensive administrative check, including cross-checks with the Land Parcel Identification System, must be completed before any payment can issue. The person named was selected for a ground inspection. Issues arose in respect of identifying land parcels on the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS). Department officials are working to resolve the issues as soon as possible. The person named will be contacted as soon as there are any further developments.
