The Crofting Commission has today, Monday 12th of June, 2023 announced that it has launched its digital application system for a range of its application types to the public after a period of testing and evaluation. Crofters and their agents can now apply digitally for Assignations, Decroftings, Sublets and Divisions online. The process has been designed to be simple, efficient and inclusive, and with more applications types moving to a digital version over the coming months it is the best way to make a Crofting Regulatory application.
The system allows the completion of an application at an applicant’s own pace from almost any internet connected device. The intuitive wizard makes sure crofters or their agents get the correct form for what they want to do every time and never have to worry about your application being rejected. The built in validation makes sure that no vital information is missed, which can lead to lengthy delays when using the traditional paper forms. The system is being improved all the time with new features, such as the ability to view the real-time progress of any submitted application form which is coming soon.
If applicants prefer to fill in a paper form, or have already started one, they can upload this and submit it to the Commission digitally, to take advantage of the instant, guaranteed receipt.
The Commission encourages all crofters or their agents to apply via the Crofting Commission website to complete their digital application to ensure the fastest, most secure application type to minimise the risk of any unnecessary delays.
