Islands Plan Consultation

Time is running out if you want to add your views to the Scottish Government’s Islands Plan which closes this week – 26th of July 2019.

It is vital that as many people as possible who live, work and interact with Scotland’s islands and their communities take part in this consultation. We want to hear people’s experiences and especially, their views about what we can build on and do differently in the future. The questions set out below aim to give people the chance to shape the National Islands Plan in a way that truly responds to their interests and aspirations.

Paul Wheelhouse, Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands in the Scottish Government said:

Paul Wheelhouse“The development of the first National Islands Plan represents a genuine opportunity to shape the future. Our islands have their own unique heritage, landscapes and terrestrial and marine biodiversity and it is the need to maintain and enhance these valued assets that underpins the way forward.

“I would like the National Islands Plan to be ambitious, to set out a long-term vision for what our islands can achieve and to make sure that the things that make our islands so special will not only continue to be protected, but flourish.
