Crofting Legislative Priorities




On 5 October, the Committee agreed to undertake a short focussed review of priorities for crofting law reform. 

The key objectives of this piece of work were to:

  • inform the Committee of the activity already undertaken by stakeholders and the Scottish Government in working towards a reform of crofting law;
  • allow it to make an assessment of the priority action that has so far been identified; and
  • make recommendations on any action it considers necessary to progress and complement the reform process

In November 2016, the Committee held in four evidence sessions, where we heard evidence from crofting stakeholders:
