There are regulatory application forms and guidance notes for each regulatory function the Crofting Commission is responsible for.
Some regulatory applications must be advertised by either the applicant or the Crofting Commission. See the Law, Policy and Procedures on Public Notification and our list of recognised newspapers. Please note, regulatory applications only need to be advertised once.
The Crofting Commission welcomes the completion of application forms in Gaelic.
CROFTING REGISTER - IMPORTANT NOTICE
Some regulatory applications now trigger the compulsory requirement to register your croft with the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland. In some cases this has resulted in delays in processing applications. In many circumstances the law says we cannot take decisions on regulatory applications until the croft is registered. A full list of the regulatory triggers can be found here.
We realise that delays cause frustration with our customers. One of the main reasons for delays is problems with the maps submitted with the Registration application. We would urge you to refer to the guidance issued by Registers of Scotland on the detail required in the maps It is also important that cheques for payment of the croft registration fee should be made payable to the Crofting Commission.
