Flooding may impact on agri-environment scheme delivery
If that is the case, members may not meet the terms of their agri-environment agreement. They need to notify Welsh Government as soon as possible. The Glastir Entry Booklet 1: General Guidance 2014 says:
‘Applications for force majeure or exceptional circumstance must be made in writing to the Welsh Government within 10 working days of you or someone entitled on your behalf being in a position to do so. Each notification will be carefully considered on a case-by-case basis. For the Welsh Government to consider whether the event in question can be accepted as force majeure or exceptional circumstances, conclusive proof must be provided that the event has occurred. You should therefore ensure that your application contains all relevant evidence to support your case, which you should send to your Divisional Office’.
Members should contact their Divisional Office as soon as possible if they believe the flooding will have an impact on delivering their agreements.
