This Act amends principally the Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993 and consequentially the Crofting Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 in respect of applications to decroft by owner-occupier crofters and the subsequent handling of such application by the Crofters Commission. The Act also provides with respect to appeals against decisions of the Commission. An owner-occupier crofter may apply to the Commission for a decrofting direction, i.e. a direction that the owner-occupier’s croft is to cease to be a croft. Where a decrofting direction is given in relation to a croft, the 1993 Act ceases to apply to the croft.

Amends: Crofting Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 (2010 asp 14). (2010-08-06)

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
