With Orkney community every step of the way
Orkney is no stranger to ambition and innovation. Orcadians are proud of the islands they call home and recognise the importance of stewarding the land and economy for future generations.
The OHA Masterplan has been created with the local community at its heart, outlining a journey towards better opportunities for local people and the economy. We believe that now is the time to invest in our facilities and infrastructure so that we can meet the needs of changing markets, grow new businesses and safeguard Orkney’s harbours and community assets for future generations.
Not only will the Masterplan safeguard existing jobs, but it will also create new ones, providing career opportunities across the entire archipelago. With our commitment to sustainable development, as well as the ambition to promote Orkney as a world-leader in the marine sector, we are building a better Orkney for everyone.
