Any application for an extension must be made prior to the expiry fo the termed period, as an extension cannot be granted once the term has expired. We would, therefore, recommend that you consider submitting the application around 12 months priof to the expiry of the termed period.
The Crofting Commission, on considering an application for the extension of the term of the apportionment can decide to either grant or refuse an extension.
Please note, however, this application form cannot be used to review an apportionment. If you are applying for a review of an apportionment, please use the form titled 'Application for Review of Apportionment of Common Grazings; Section 52(12) of the Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993.'
Please note further, that this application form cannot be used to seek to convert the apportionment from a termed apportionment to a permanent apportionment. There is no provision to convert a termed apportionment, only to extend the termed period.
