The Orkney Community Planning Partnership is undergoing a major restructuring. Some of the information on this site is therefore out of date. We hope to have the site up-to-date by early 2016.
A new plan is now available. It was amended following suggestions made in the public consultation held over the summer of 2015.
We have also produced an Orkney Community Planning update.
Community Planning in Orkney
Community planning is about public service providers working together, and with communities to improve the quality of people’s lives.
Since 2013, our Community Plan has shared a vision with Orkney's Local Development Plan:
"By 2030, Orkney will be a first choice location for people to live and work. Orkney will have nationally significant training and investment opportunities. Orkney will attract visitors from around the world to admire its natural environment, heritage and cutting edge business and industrial facilities. Above all, Orkney will be the place to enjoy an exceptional quality of life, a fulfilling career and a sustainable lifestyle."
Already our vision has moved closer to fruition. However, we want everybody in Orkney to have an equal opportunity to share in its success, and we will stay focused on our vision until this has been achieved, in accordance with our shared mission:
Working together for a better Orkney
