Papa Westray Island Development Plan
Including Young People
Access to employment, housing, advanced education and recreational opportunities are vital for young folk to be able to live in the isle after full time education. We will strive to meet these needs and to include young folk in all aspects of island life.
We will ensure that young folk have the opportunity to be included in all aspects of island life and the development trust, community council and community association will actively seek representation by young folk and consider the views of young folk in local decision making and in planning community activities.
Sports and Recreation
Improve existing community sports facilities such as the golf course, football pitch and gym equipment in co-operation with land owners, and employ a part-time youth worker to support local youth activities, including sports and recreational clubs.
Music and New Media Initiatives
Provide local opportunities to participate in traditional and contemporary music and live music events,
