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.

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.
