The Crofting Commission regulates and promotes crofting to secure the future of crofting and contribute to the sustainable development of rural communities.

On 21 October 2014 the Crofting Commission is sending out Crofting Census (Annual Notice) forms to all crofts. The Census, which is a legal requirement, provides crofters with the opportunity to shape the future of crofting.
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.
