Consultation and Engagement

Consultations and engagements.

All councils are expected to consult on specific areas of their service delivery, allowing service users and other interested parties opportunity to be involved in planning, prioritising and monitoring of services. 

You can view the current consultation and engagement activity at Orkney Islands Council through the menu on the left of this page.

A selection of previous consultations, and Council responses to consultations by other organisations, are also available from the 'Previous Consultations' menu link on this page.

How does OIC consult with the community?

The Council has adopted consultation and engagement guidelines which were developed by the Orkney Community Planning Partnership in 2009. The guidelines are regularly updated to reflect new learning and best practice.

The Community Consultation and Engagement Guide can be viewed on The Orkney Partnership website from the 'Related Sites' section of this page.

Amended Orkney Core Paths Plan - 15 March 2018 to 7 June 2018

The Orkney Core Paths Plan identifies a framework of paths that provide local people and visitors with opportunities to enjoy and get around the countryside across the islands.

Local authorities may review their core paths network periodically. Orkney Islands Council has recently carried out this exercise and has published an amended core paths plan for consultation which runs from 15 March until 7 June 2018. More information can be found from the 'Related Links' section of this page.
