An application under the 2015 Basic Payment/Areas of Natural Constraints Schemes was received from the person named on 11 May 2015. EU Regulations governing the administration of these schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including in some cases Remote Sensing (i.e. satellite) inspections, be completed before any payments issue.

The application of the person named was selected for a Remote Sensing eligibility inspection. This inspection has now been completed and the results have been finalised. Payments due under the Basis Payment Scheme have issued to the nominated bank account of the person named.

Processing of the Areas of Natural Constraints application has recently been finalised and payment will issue shortly, directly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
