Agri-Environment Climate Scheme

Published: 20 Apr 2016 14:01

Application deadline extended.

The deadline for submitting Agri-Environment Climate Scheme (AECS) applications has been extended to Monday April 25, 2016.

The original application deadline was close of play today (Wednesday April 20, 2016). However, during the weekend some people may have experienced technical issues whilst reviewing the Schedule of Works or uploading supporting documents. These issues have now been resolved.

As the usual maintenance routine means Rural Payments and Services will be unavailable overnight on Thursday, farmers and land managers have now been given until Monday April 25 to submit their AECS applications.

The deadline for submitting supporting documents remains unchanged at May 16, 2016.

Notes to editors

Rural Payments and Services will be unavailable from 6pm on Thursday April 21 until 6am on Friday April 22, 2016.
