The person named applied for grant aid for the purchase of two Automatic Slurry Scrapers with New Drives under tranche 12 of  the Animal Welfare and Nutrient Storage Scheme, one of the suite of seven measures available under TAMS II. Approval issued on 21 November 2018. A payment claim for the purchase of the approved equipment was subsequently submitted.

A number of issues arose following a pre-payment Inspection. The person named was informed of these issues and a penalty for non-compliance was applied as outlined in a letter to the applicant dated 17 February 2020.  A request for a review of this decision was subsequently received. This review is currently being processed and the Regional Inspector will be in direct contact with the person named as soon as the review process is complete.
