Orkney Islands Council recently published a draft design plan for the new Stromness Care Home. A subsequent publicity campaign on the radio and social media invited responses to the draft plan, via a paper or online survey.
There were a total of sixteen responses, with thirteen of those coming from the public and two from Orkney Health and Care staff. There was also a detailed response from Stromness Community Council.
The details of the comments received have now been published (and anonymised, where appropriate), along with the responses of the project team. This is available in PDF format from the ‘Related Downloads’ section of this page.
The new care home doesn’t have a name, just yet. That will be discussed with people in Stromness once construction is nearing completion.
