Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre Development Trust Ltd

Area of Operation:

Island Group of Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre, Orkney
Northern Isles (Shetland & Orkney)

How We Started

The Trust was formed following a series of well-attended public meetings where residents discussed concerns, challenges, opportunities and aspirations. A draft development plan was produced and the Trust was then set up to pursue the goals laid out in that document - all of them being stepping-stones on the way to a sustainable future for our island group.

What We Do

Our main activities can be summarised as follows: The re-invigoration of Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre's community through: · Community engagement and consultation · Local capacity and skill development · Local project delivery · Partnership working

Our Future Plans

We are working towards the installation of a commmunity-owned and managed wind turbine, which will generate electricity to be sold to the National Grid, providing us with revenue to invest in further community projects.
