The person named submitted a 2015 Private Contract Clause application to my Department seeking the transfer of land and entitlements by lease as transferee. Issues regarding changes to the herd number of the transferor in this case are being resolved to allow this application to be finalised to facilitate payment under the Basic Payment Scheme as soon as possible.

The person named has also submitted an application to my Department under the Young Farmers Scheme. Once payment under the Basic Payment Scheme has been made, the application to the Young Farmers Scheme will be finalised with a view to payment issuing as soon as possible thereafter.
