COUNCIL DIRECTIVE

of 15 November 1982

amending Directive 75/268/EEC on mountain and hill farming and farming in certain less-favoured areas

(82/786/EEC)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Articles 42 and 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (1),

Whereas in the regions of Greece the minimum of three hectares for the utilized agricultural area of farms qualifying for the compensatory allowance provided for in Title II of Directive 75/268/EEC (2), as last amended by Directive 80/666/EEC (3), is too high in view of the large number of very small holdings; whereas the minimum should be reduced to two hectares;

Whereas in the less-favoured agricultural areas of the regions of Greece within the meaning of Directive 75/268/EEC the rate of reimbursement of 25 % of eligible expenditure in respect of incentives for farmers who submit a development plan, provided for in Article 15 of the Directive, does not appear sufficient for effective application of the measures for the modernization of farms provided for in Directive 72/159/EEC (4); whereas the rate should therefore be fixed at 50 %;

Whereas the measures provided for in Article 11 of Directive 75/268/EEC are of increased importance in the regions of Greece; whereas the rate of reimbursement of relevant expenditure does not appear sufficient to permit those measures to be applied efficiently; whereas the rate of reimbursement should therefore be fixed at 50 % and the maximum Community contribution at 48 358 ECU per joint investment scheme and 242 ECU per hectare of pasture or mountain grazing land improved or provided with equipment;

Whereas in Greece the rate of reimbursement of 25 % of eligible expenditure in respect of the compensatory allowance, provided for in Article 15 of Directive 75/268/EEC, does not appear sufficient to permit effective application of that measure; whereas the rate should therefore be fixed at 50 %,
