Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations prescribe the procedure to be followed by a crofting community body when it wishes to apply to Scottish Ministers for a grant under section 90 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 (“the Act”). Such a grant may be applied for when a crofting community body is liable to pay compensation under section 89 of the Act to any person, including the owner, or former owner of land or sporting interests, and that body has been unable to obtain enough money to pay, or to pay in full, the compensation. If the Scottish Ministers consider that the crofting community body has taken all reasonable steps to raise money from other sources and have failed to obtain sufficient money, and that it is in the public interest to pay a grant, they may do so.

Regulation 2 provides that it is the crofting community body which must apply to the Scottish Ministers for a grant, and regulation 3 prescribes the time limits for making an application. Regulation 4 provides that the Scottish Ministers must make a decision on an application for a grant within 21 days of its receipt.

The Schedule to the Regulations specifies the information which must be supplied by the crofting community body when making an application for a grant.
