Local Development Strategy

The Orkney Islands Local Development Strategy sets out how the 2014-2020 LEADER and FLAG programme will be implemented within Orkney.  The strategy was produced in consultation with communities and businesses and explored the key needs and opportunities available to communities within Orkney which could help to support the local economy and communities to become stronger and more resilient.
