Executive Director - Gavin Barr.

The D and I Service underpins day to day life in Orkney. We provide front line services including waste, roads, ferry, towage and air transportation services. We project manage, design and maintain buildings including the new schools, harbours, housing and conservation regeneration projects. We service the Harbour Authority and operate Cursiter Quarry. We offer specialist engineering, technical marine and strategic transport professional expertise. We provide links to Europe and our development and regeneration teams are at the forefront of business and economic development spanning traditional and emerging sectors including renewables. We also implement statutory planning, conservation, building standards, trading standards and environmental health services.

Development and Infrastructure is a public facing, customer focused Directorate. We value active engagement with the Orkney community and strive for excellence and efficiency in everything we do.
