Westray Development Trust - Northern Isles (Shetland & Orkney)

Established 1998

A number of the projects included in the initial strategic plan have now been achieved, for example the establishment of a youth centre, the construction of a care centre in partnership with Orkney Islands Council, and the commissioning of a community owned wind turbine. Current projects are identified on the WDT website and include Golf Course development, projects to assist economic development, and ongoing management of the Hofn Youth Centre and the community owned wind turbine (through Westray Renewable Energy, the trading subsidiary of WDT). The trust has recently moved into trust-owned offices and an Operations Manager has been employed to manage the business of the trust as well as trading subsidiaries.
