Housing design in the countryside — share your views
The local authority have said any feedback received will help shape new planning policy advice, which is currently being developed.
To help with this, a drop-in session will be held at the King Street Halls, in Kirkwall, on Wednesday, May 16.
At the drop-in, feedback will be invited in response to four questions:
- What makes Orkney’s countryside distinctive?
- What design works well?
- What design doesn’t work so well?
- What is important to you in terms of design?
“The design advice we’re developing will help guide decisions on future planning applications,” said Susan Shearer, a senior planner with the Council.
“We’re calling the event ‘Design: Fitting Housing into the Countryside’ — and we hope to gather a broad range of views and ideas.
The drop-in runs from 12 noon to 6pm and all are welcome.
