They will consider several points when an application is received which include the specific needs and long term interests of the community, and the skills a new tenant will bring, suitability of the new tenant in terms of their experience and plans for the croft. The suitability of the proposed tenant is of prime importance and they will be asked to give plans for the working and stocking of the croft as well as previous experience and skills which would be useful to the township. The Commission are able to refuse an assignation if they feel the proposed tenant is not suitable.
