A group of representatives from Scottish Government will be in Lewis from Tuesday to Thursday next week (April 23 to 25) for three days of public consultations, facilitated by Point and Sandwick Trust. The community wind farm charity have facilitated the Scottish Government visit at the request of the Scottish Islands Federation. The community events are part of a consultation programme for the new National Islands Plan and Island Communities Impact Assessments. There will be representation from the Scottish Government’s Islands Team, as well as from the Scottish Islands Federation and the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, who are delivering the consultation programme. The consultations aim to gather views from across a broad spectrum of the island population, to help shape the National Islands Plan “so that it responds truly to the wishes, desires and concerns of island communities”.
