Election of Grazings Committees

Grazing Committees are set up to manage the common grazing. To have a regulated (protected by law) common grazing there must be a Grazing Committee.

The committee consists of a number of people who share in the common grazing and are elected onto the Committee by other shareholders.

Grazing Committees are the most effective way to safeguard the future of common grazing land and they can hold a valuable source of knowledge about crofting in the area. Grazing Committees can also contribute to increasing the confidence in communal working and management of community assets.

You can search for details of In Office Grazings Committees through our ROC Online 

Common Grazings - Election of Grazings Committees

Please note: where a new committee has to be appointed at the end of a 3 year term, section 47(1) of the 1993 Act will require public notification of a meeting, and section 55A defines public notification as newspaper advertisement. The Commission will no longer accept Notification Forms where the meeting has not been advertised in a newspaper circulating in the district of the common grazings.

You may be eligible for assistance of up to £500 towards the establishment of a properly constituted  common grazings committee, contact your nearest Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspections Directorate to find out more.

UPDATE FOR CROFTERS

Given last night’s announcement from the UK and Scottish Government the Crofting Commission’s office is now effectively closed.

Working without an office base presents us with many practical challenges and we will not be able to offer a normal service. We cannot deal with any new applications for the time being, though we will keep this under review. Meantime, our staff who continue to work from home, will process existing applications as far as possible.

You can continue to contact us by email info@crofting.gov.scot. Messages received in this inbox will find their way to the right person.

We cannot take phone calls on our normal office number or respond to any voicemails that are left on that number. Instead we have added mobile numbers to the Contact Us page of this website so crofters can continue to speak with us.

These are certainly unprecedented times and the proposals outlined above may change but we will keep you updated if they do.
