Community Planning in Orkney

Community planning is about public service providers working together, and with communities to improve the quality of people’s lives.

Orkney Community Plan shares the ambition of Orkney's Local Development Plan:

“To strengthen and support Orkney’s communities by enabling those developments which will have a positive and sustainable socio-economic impact, and utilise locally-available resources, whilst striving to preserve and enhance the rich natural and cultural heritage assets upon which Orkney’s economy and society depends.”

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

In 2015 the Orkney Community Planning Partnership made the decision to concentrate on the areas most in need of intervention.  Three priorities for action were selected.  These address challenges which no single agency can solve on its own.  You can find out more from our Introduction to Community Planning page or our latest plan
