star this property answer text <p>Under article 13 of EU regulation 809/2014, Member States must require claims to be made by no later than 15 May, and this is the deadline adopted in the UK. Late claims submitted within the next 25 days are subject to a penalty of 1% of the claim for each working day’s delay. Claims already submitted by 15 May can be adjusted after that in some circumstances. We expect that the Rural Payments system, and our provision of support to those who may face any difficulty in applying online, will ensure that all farmers have every opportunity to claim their direct payments by 15 May. There are <em>force majeure</em> provisions for those that fail to submit on time which can apply in limited circumstances.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Secretary of State is also seeking to make such penalties more proportionate in future.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where a person is convicted of an offence under section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (the ‘fly-tipping’), section 33B (2) of that Act provides that “loss or damage resulting from the offence” in section 130 of the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 specifically includes costs incurred or to be incurred by a relevant person in removing the waste deposited or disposed of in or on the land; taking other steps to eliminate or reduce the consequences of the deposit or disposal; or both.</p><p> </p><p>A “relevant person” is defined for these purposes in section 33B (3) as including the occupier of the land and the owner of the land.</p><p> </p><p>A court can order the person convicted of fly-tipping to pay compensation to the occupier or owner of the land in respect of costs incurred or to be incurred in removing the waste and/or associated clean-up costs. Whether a court would in any particular case make such an order will depend on the nature of the case, any other form of punishment to which the offender is to be sentenced, and the financial means of the offender to pay. Once a compensation order is made the courts have a role in enforcing that order to ensure that monies are paid. This is reflected in the sentencing guideline. The application of the guideline is a matter for the court to decide. A copy of this document will be placed in the Library.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is not currently considering providing compensation to landowners in relation to large-scale commercial dumping of waste on private land.</p><p> </p><p>Fly-tipping is unacceptable whether it occurs on public or private land. However, fly-tipping on private land is a difficult issue. Local authorities are not under any legal obligation to clear fly-tipped waste from private property, so this responsibility falls to the landowner. Some authorities may offer a clearance service but they are likely to charge for this. If, following an investigation, a conviction is secured then the court can award compensation which covers the costs of clearance of waste to the landowner.</p> more like this
