FOI Request: 101636

Received: 16 October 2019

Division: Serving Crofting

Status: Completed

I write with reference to your emails dated 26th June 2019 and the files attached thereto. Contained therein is a letter from the Senior Manager of the Crofters Commission Archie Macnab dated 18th February 2003. In his letter he refers to a Development Brief. Do the Crofting Commission have a record of the contents of the brief? Also, is it possible to obtain a copy of the said letter without redactions in order to pursue enquiries?

Decision: Partial Release 12 November 2019

The requested copy of the Development brief mentioned in the letter dated 18 February 2003, this brief can be found on the Highland council’s website. With regards to an unredacted copy of the letter I am only able to remove part of the redaction for you as the rest would be in breach of the Data Protection Principles.



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 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.

Crofting Commission, Great Glen House, Leachkin Road, Inverness, IV3 8NW
