Island 1600x600

Consultation

The National Islands Plan will set out how Scottish Government, local authorities and other public agencies will work to improve outcomes for island communities. Together with the Scottish Government Islands Team and Scottish Island Federation, SCELG has endeavoured to capture the dreams, aspirations and concerns of those who live on and those who have an interest in Scottish Islands and their communities. In order to do so, between April and July 2019, we embarked on a participative and inclusive consultation in which we met as many members of island communities in Scotland as possible. Below you will find the list of our event and reports summarising the main points that were raised by participants.

Consultation events

Between April and July 2019 SCELG, Scottish Government and Scottish Island Federation will capture the views of island communities through a wide consultation process. Below you will find the dates, venues and information about the events that have been organised. We also aim to post a report from each event so that you can keep track of the main points stemming from each event.

Consultation document

SCELG has contributed to the Scottish Government consultation document. The goal is to introduce the National Islands Plan and the Islands Communities Impact Assessment to island communities so that they can engage pro-actively both in the consultation events and in the on-line consultation.

On line consultation

SCELG has contributed to the Scottish Government on line consultation. We look forward to assisting the Scottish Government Islands Team in reviewing the data stemming from the consultation in order to reflect into the National Islands Plan the views, visions and concerns of island communities and of all stakeholders interested in Scottish islands who respond to the on-line consultation.
