SCF Launches Housing Study

Scottish Crofting Foundation (SCF) launched its ‘Housing on Crofting Land’ study at its Skye and Lochalsh Area AGM at Sligachan Hotel on Thursday night. The purpose of the study is to identify ways in which crofting communities can make land available for affordable housing without damaging crofting interests or encouraging speculation. The study will be carried out by Derek Logie of the Rural Housing Service, who has enabled many low-cost housing projects in rural Scotland. Derek will be assisted by Tiree-based housing worker Clare Jones. The study is the first of its kind to look specifically at the unique circumstances of crofting tenure.
