Over the next 8 months, Orkney Islands Council will be preparing a new plan for Kirkwall.  Rather than do it alone, it wants to make sure the plan is what the community wants. 

Local people might have ideas they’d like to see happen – or you might even have a project you want to do yourself.

Your Kirkwall is a series of community conversations and events where people are encouraged to come together to discuss and share ideas for the future of Kirkwall over the next 10-20 years – to help improve Kirkwall as a place to live, work and visit.  The project aims to involve residents, schools, community groups, local businesses, voluntary organisations, the council, and others.  It will feed into a Community Action Plan and guide the Council’s future planning, design and transport policies for Kirkwall.

Your Kirkwall is a community led exercise delivered by a community-focused charity called PAS. PAS is working with Orkney Islands Council to facilitate this process and ensure that the future vision for Kirkwall is an inclusive one.

Our first community event will take place on 22nd and 23rd of November 2017 in Kirkwall and St Ola Community Centre, Broad Street (all welcome – please spread the word!).  To help us plan for this event, it would be helpful if you could complete this short survey.
