THE FUW is highlighting the reopening of the Glastir Advanced window to those farmers who might be interested.
Following the Fairness for the Uplands judicial review outcome and the removal of the Moorland layer from the scoring, Welsh Government is reopening the Glastir Advanced window between February 9 and March 6.
“Those farmers who had already submitted an Expression of Interest (EoI) will have received a rather confusing letter from Welsh Government, which informs them that they need not reapply unless there have been material changes to their circumstances,” said FUW land use and parliamentary committee chairman Gavin Williams. “Anyone else interested in applying for Glastir Advanced 2016 will need to submit an EoI via an RPW Online account before March 6.
As a consequence of the judicial review, Welsh Government has also had to review the balance of their Rural Development expenditure and so there are no current plans to open a Glastir Entry window this year,” added Mr Williams.
