Further to the completion of the review of eligible lands under the Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) scheme, which was required by EU regulation, my Department wrote to all impacted farmers advising of the status of their lands under the 2019 ANC scheme. These letters included a form to instigate an appeal. The appeals form is also available on www.agriculture.gov.ie. For any farmer who wishes to appeal the status of a particular townland under the 2019 ANC scheme, an independently chaired appeals process is available.

My Department has received a notification of appeal from the person named in relation to two townlands. My Department will provide full information in relation to the data underpinning the status of these townlands in order that the person named can base any appeal to the independent Appeals Committee on full information. This information will issue to the person named shortly.
