Statutory documents

Every community planning partnership is required to publish a Local Outcomes Improvement Plan (LOIP). Orkney Community Plan incorporates Orkney's LOIP and is a three-year rolling plan which is refreshed, updated and reissued every year. It describes what we aim to achieve by working together in partnership.

  • Locality Plan 2018-2021 - Non-linked Isles

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. 

For this plan, priorities for action were identified by isles residents themselves through the Your Island Your Choice consultation exercise.

This Strategy refers to the Equality Act 2010, with Scottish Specific Duties Regulations which came into force on 27 May 2012:

These regulations have been amended twice – in 2015 and again in 2016. You need to read all three sets of Regulations together.
