Working together for a better Orkney

Tourist Signposting Policy

The Scottish Executive guidance SODD Circular 27/1995, which was introduced in January 1996, replaced Circular 3/1992, and opened the way for more tourist related businesses to be eligible to apply for tourist signposting.

As required by Circular 27/1995 Orkney Islands Council as Roads Authority has prepared the following policy and procedures, which are designed to be sensitive to the needs of local tourism while not compromising the needs of local road safety, traffic management or amenity.

The Council consulted with the relevant organisations and other interested parties. These are:

  • Artists Trail
  • Community Councils
  • Craft Trail
  • Development Officers
  • Highlands and Islands Enterprise
  • Orkney Tourism Group
  • Visit Orkney
  • Historic Scotland
  • VisitScotland

The full Tourist Signposting Policy is available in the 'Related Downloads' section at the side of the page.
