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 – and help improve Kirkwall as a place to live, work and visit.

The project aims to involve everyone from residents, schools, community groups, local businesses, voluntary organisations, the council, and others. It will feed into a Community Action Plan and guide Council planning / design / transportation policies for Kirkwall in the future.

This week, there are series of further events taking place in Kirkwall, including a youth summit – being attended by BBC Orkney and the local MP and MSP.

Your Kirkwall is a glowing example of best practice in active citizenship through meaningful participation, and we must be aspiring for this to be the norm for communities all across Scotland.
