With the commencement of the campaigns for the Scottish elections, the Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) is challenging political parties to lay out in their manifestos how they will deliver for crofting based on ‘Five Actions for Crofting’.
“We are keeping this simple”, said SCF’s chair Fiona Mandeville, “by presenting just the top five actions that must be addressed by the next Scottish Government. We have widespread agreement that by tackling these five areas the Scottish Government can make a real and positive impact on crofting communities and on rural Scotland.”
The ‘Five Actions for Crofting’ are:
– Target Financial Incentives
– Simplify Crofting Legislation
– Make Crofts Available
– Increase Affordable Housing
– Deliver Crofting Development
