On the 18 April 2017, the Council adopted a new Local Development Plan for Orkney, the Orkney Local Development Plan 2017. The Plan period is 2017 to 2022. This is now the main document with the associated Supplementary Guidance used for deciding planning applications. If you have any questions on the Plan please email Development and Marine Planning.
A copy of the Orkney Local Development Plan is available via the 'Related Downloads' section of this page, and an online, interactive version is available via the 'Related Sites' section.
