The BPS 2015 Entitlement Values, Greening Payment and the funding required for the National Reserve have now been confirmed by the RPA.
The BPS 2015 Entitlement Values are: €171.83 Non-SDA, €170.60 SDA Non-Moorland and €45.07 SDA Moorland
The Greening Payment (additional payment over and above the BPS entitlement value) values are €76.19 for non SDA, €75.64 SDA Non-Moorland and €19.99 SDA Moorland.
The National Reserve has required 0.75% of the Direct Payments fund. (The exchange rate was confirmed at the end of September as being €1 = £0.73129.)
Therefore, the value for both Entitlement and the Greening Payment for Non-SDA land in 2015 equates to £181.37/ha (£73.40/acre).
