Assessors

An Assessor is a person appointed by the Crofting Commission with knowledge of crofting, who lives in a crofting area. Assessors pass on information locally and are available to signpost crofters to the Commission’s and other services.  

They provide a highly valued link between the Commission and crofting communities and are utilised for the benefit of crofting in all crofting areas. The Assessors role is voluntary but they can reclaim receipted travel and subsistence expenses as well as loss of earnings for any time required to perform work on behalf of the Commission.

A new panel of Assessors has been appointed from February 2018 until the Spring of 2023.  The list of Assessors can be found below.

Covid -19

UPDATE: CORONAVIRUS
The Commission is now accepting new applications, but as all staff continue to work from home and the office remains closed, these will be processed more slowly than usual. Any applications that relate to statutory deadlines, or which concern a Crofting Register form to notify the Commission that an event has taken place, will be given priority over other applications.

Where applications require a site visit, it will not be possible for any site visit to be carried out until the government eases the current restrictions on movement.Where any application involves a hearing, no hearings will take place until the current restrictions on movement are eased and the government has advised that public meetings (with appropriate physical distancing) can take place.

Approved Applications:

If you are a crofter who has had an application approved by the Commission within the last 3 months
Please read this important information regarding effecting Commission regulatory decisions.

You can continue to contact us by email info@crofting.gov.scot and although we are now in a position to deal with phone calls to our reception line, few staff have access to work phones to make return calls and therefore the service will be limited. We would therefore ask that you continue to contact us via email.

The Commission understands that this is a difficult time for all concerned, but we wish to reassure crofters and their agents that we will continue to work to restore normal levels of service. It is unlikely that this can be fully restored until the government permits offices to reopen and for various restrictions on movements and meetings to be eased.
