SCF call on land reform gurus to support the creation of new crofts

In their response to the Land Reform Review Group ‘call for evidence’ the Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) has reiterated its petition to the Scottish Government to create 10,000 new crofts by 2020 and asks the group to support this.
Fiona Mandeville, Vice Chair of the SCF said "We have pressed the Scottish Government to set out the policies that will be put in place to facilitate rapid extension of the crofting system. This is based on a fundamental belief, not only within SCF, that in the Scottish context crofting is the model best placed to deliver the emerging policy goals for agriculture and rural development. Review of land reform in Scotland should reflect these policy goals and so we have asked the Group to support our request."
