Last minute.com here!!
Now that greening is no longer required do I have to remove all my hedges & buffer strips from my land use sheet or can they stay on there?

They can stay. No need to remove them.

Most importantly click that send button before midnight tonight to avoid penalties for being late.
You can make alterations for a while yet afterwards if you need to.
Bit nervous doing it. Seems too easy this time - No greening to worry about.

It certainly is easier now that the greening has gone.
But you do not need to remove the (former) greening hedges or buffer strips.
Get all you can do done and press that submit button before midnight tonight.

As I say, if you need to, you can make alterations for a while yet afterwards, even though you have submitted. I think it is by the middle of June, but not sure.

Dose anyone else know when that alterations deadline is?

P.S.

Just found it. 11th June is the alterations deadline.

I've extended the farmyard into a field a bit, probably nicked about 0.2 Ha. I guess I need to fill in an Rle1 and notify them of the boundary change. I assume I will need to put the new field sizes on the land use part of the form. Do I delete the existing fields from the list and start again with the new sizes?

We’ve just taken a bit more field into yard space, I just altered the split field areas on our form, didn’t even think about an RLE1 for it, but no doubt I will hear if it’s needed!

I've simply split the field for the moment and allocated 0.20 Ha as farmyard. Wondering if I need to make it a permanent change though.

I did likewise previously and intended to do an RLE1 form in December after payment was received so as not to risk a delay. Totally forgot, then the following year the maps were all updated and perfectly accurate based on the new change.

Probably safer to use an RLE1 form now though.

I don't like doing rle1 forms during the bps application as they don't need any more excuses to delay payment.
It's strange. They've remapped a couple of other fields nearby but haven't altered the one boundary I want them to do.

Have until May 31 to make certain amendments to the application without penalty. 11 June is the last date for alterations but penalties may apply for the period between May 31 and June 11.

But as usual do not take notice of me - ask RPA. Cheers.

An RLE1 is just an excuse for them yo delay paying us.
I’ve made a few minor alterations and not bothered with RLE1’s.
I just subdivide the Parcel number into A&B.
They always seem to get the map right by the following year.
