Locality Plan 2018-2021 - Non-linked Isles
We’ve now published our first Locality Plan. The Plan details the top priorities for action identified by isles residents themselves through the Your Island Your Choice consultation exercise, and the action we plan to take.
Every community planning partnership in Scotland must produce one or more locality plans. A locality plan identifies local areas which are relatively disadvantaged in terms of social and economic opportunities and sets out what the partnership will do to improve outcomes in the area. The plan takes account of existing work and identifies any gaps or issues that need to be addressed. You can find out more by reading the plan.
Strategic Environmental Assessment
The Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005
Under Section 8(1) of the above Act Orkney Islands Council has formally determined, in consultation with Historic Environment Scotland, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Scottish Natural Heritage that implementation of the Orkney Partnership’s Locality Plan 2018-2021 is unlikely to lead to significant environmental effects. Therefore, no environmental report will be prepared alongside the Locality Plan 2018-2021.
Copies of this Determination and the associated Statement of Reasons are available below. They are also available from Orkney Islands Council Customer Services, Council Offices, School Place, Kirkwall, Orkney KW15 1NY, as well as the Council’s website at www.orkney.gov.uk.
