1. SCF call on the next Scottish Government to publish an Action Plan for Crofting within a year of taking office. The plan should set out the policies that will be put in place to meet two objectives:
1. A majority of Scotland’s existing 17,000 crofts being used by active crofters to produce food and public goods – 70% by 2020 and 85% by 2030.
2. Creating 10,000 new crofts by 2020, with a longer term objective of increasing the area of land under crofting tenure so that one-quarter of land in Scotland is in crofting tenure by 2030.
