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.
