RPA to publish information to help commoners understand payments

We received a response from Mark Grimshaw, CEO, RPA to our e-mail on July 27th. In brief he acknowledges our concerns and as usual tells us that RPA is working hard to get the payments right.

If you think that you haven't been paid the right amount then you must get in touch with RPA as soon as possible.

You can phone them on 03000 200 301, e-mail ruralpayments@defra.gsi.gov.uk or write to Rural Payments Agency, PO Box 69, Reading, RG1 3YD

Mr Grimshaw also tell us that RPA intend to publish information on Gov.UK website about the eligible area of the common, and the total livestock units claimed so that you can work out your payment per common. The Federation may be able to help you with this.
