The minimum claim is now 5ha (12.4 acres) anyone with less than 5ha hectares needs to consider their options. 

 

The usage rules have also changed, all entitlements must be claimed on once in every 2 years.  Any unclaimed entitlements will be confiscated without compensation.

 

Anyone claiming on entitlements must be deemed by the RPA to be an “active farmer” and therefore should ensure they meet the criteria before submitting a claim.
