A member of the Development and Marine Planning Team (see 'The Team' under 'Related Links' further down this page) is available for you to meet face to face at the main Orkney Islands Council Office in Kirkwall and via the telephone on 01856873535 extension 2531 between 09:00 and 17:00 on week days. If you wish to make an appointment to speak with a member of staff either in Kirkwall or in Stromness we will be happy to arrange this for you.
If this is not convenient please email us and we will endeavour to respond by the next working day to acknowledge or answer your question. Through email you can raise development planning issues, ask questions on development planning and attach photographs and plans for our information.
Email questions and other communication with members of the public will form the frequently asked questions with the Orkney Local Development Plan webpages.
If you have requested to be kept up to date with the review of the Local Development Plan, you will be on our consultee database to ensure you receive regular communications about the progress so far. In the interests of the environment, we would prefer to contact you via email. If you are happy to receive communications via email, please notify us of your email address.
