Planning Policy Advice

Development and Marine Planning provides other planning policy guidance that is supplementary to the Orkney Local Development Plan, and is a material consideration when determining planning applications. All guidance listed has entered into a period of public consultation and is seen to be relevant to development in the County.

Following the adoption of the Orkney Local Development Plan 2017 on 18 April 2017, the weight and position of a number of these documents has changed. We are currently working to refresh these webpages to reflect this. In the meantime please contact Development and Marine Planning if you have any questions 01856873535 extension 2531 or by email.

The newly adopted Plan and associated Guidances are available via the 'Related Links' section of this page.

To view documents that are currently under consultation, please click on the link to 'Current Consultations' page under 'Related Links'.
