PLEASE NOTE, in any application involving or affecting access to the croft, provisions for sufficient vehicular access must be clearly marked on plans submitted with the application. Please take the time to consider any issues relating to access to the croft carefully before submitting the application to us. This may help avoid delays in dealing with your case. To take account of modern vehicles and equipment, access to the croft should be at least 4 metres wide.

 

CROFTING REGISTER - IMPORTANT NOTICE

Certain regulatory applications now trigger the compulsory requirement to register your croft on the Crofting Register.  In some cases this has resulted in delays in processing applications. In many circumstances the law says we cannot take decisions on regulatory applications until the croft is registered. 

We realise that delays cause frustration with our customers. One of the main reasons for delays is problems with the maps submitted with the Registration application. We would urge you to refer to the guidance issued by Registers of Scotland on the detail required in the maps http://www.ros.gov.uk/pdfs/crpg.pdf  It is also important that cheques for payment of the croft registration fee should be made payable to the Crofting Commission.

A full list of the regulatory triggers can be found via the link below:

Please see the Crofting Commission Policy Plan for our Policies on individual regulatory functions.
