Nine Commissioners sit as a Board to set policies and decide complex applications. Commissioners also participate on a number of internal policy working groups with senior Commission staff.  These groups develop policy thinking and responses to partner organisations on consultations affecting the future of crofting.

Three Commissioners were appointed by Scottish Ministers and six Commissioners were elected by crofters.  All are supported by the Commission's Chief Executive and Management. 

Commissioners work 4.5 days per month with a salary of £8,789 per annum. The Convener works 8 days per month with a salary of £20,763 per annum.

All members of the Commission are bound by the provisions of the Commission’s Code of Conduct, issued and approved by the Standards Commission for Scotland.

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.
