A field of mine has been re-numbered due to a boundary moving on a side not connected with my AB1 application.

On my main SFP application the re-numbered field appears as normal.

On my mid tier application the old field number appears but with a field area of 0.00 ha and the new number is missing altogether.

My AB1 on that field can't be claimed then, I have written a note explaining this in the box provided.

Is there anything else I can do?

Just keep us informed... (y) It is great to hear of other peoples misfortune... nothing more demoralising than listening to those who spout on about how they always grown 5t/ac crops with virtually no inputs or those who have made £130/lamb and rear 1.9 lambs per ewe or even those who have dug up a Saxon hoard of gold...

Best of luck sorting that... I imagine it will involve lots of time on hold trying to speak to Natural England staff, none of whom will have a clue how to correct the problem...

The plot thickens - I have had communication from them that the capital payment for the new hedge that I have planted that is on this 'disappeared' field can't be claimed as there is not enough evidence to say where the hedge actually is despite the photographs being clearly labelled.

This is irksome as there is several hundred metres of whips, guards etc and scores of hours of time gone into that already.

We had an inspection by RPA last Thurs . He rang at 9.15 am and said he would be onfarm at 3 pm . I told him it wasn't convenient as I would be in market but that didn't put him off ....don't worry he said I don't need you to be there.
It was only an inspection for our concreteing and I had been on the phone to RPA on the Monday previous asking where the payment had got to. They claimed to have had no record of the application so I got onto my agent who despatched all the paperwork to me to prove it was in .
After RPA inspection he went to the house to look at the paperwork and said to my OH that NE are in complete disarray and are just moving from one cockup to another . He cannot see how NE can carry on in the present form as they can't get the simplest of issues sorted out . He went on to say that time after time the paperwork NE send him does not correspond with the paperwork that the applicant shows him .......as was in our case !
We now waiting to see what's going to happen !

I imagine that the amount of concrete that you have laid recently will soon appear as a field number......

Thanks for that, it is heartening to know that the poor devils there are in a muddle and that it might not be my fault and that I might, just might get paid for something that I have done in good faith and for the best of reasons.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
