The Westray Development Trust
Westray is the largest of Orkney's North Isles with a population of just 600. The primary industries are agriculture and fishing, with tourism rapidly emerging as a strong, third element to our economy.
Our community has a strong sense of belonging and is able to embrace new ideas while maintaining our sense of identity. We value our excellent education system, our good transport network and island health service. More than anything we value our sense of community, feeding our drive and determination to improve life on our island. We see the Development Trust, our partners and the regeneration strategy detailed in our Development Plan as the key to a sustainable future.
The Westray Development Trust is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. Everyone in our community is invited to become a member. The Trust will be working with our partners to implement the strategies, projects and actions detailed in the Development Plan prepared by our community.
The Development Plan has defined the Vision of the future of the island:
"To develop the economic, social and cultural sustainability of our community by harnessing the quality of our resources, people and island environment."
