Island Communities

The Scottish Government has produced a document “Empowering Scotland’s Island Communities” which is described as a prospectus for all of Scotland’s islands. 

A link to the document may be found here:

It includes proposals to allocate, on independence, 100% of the net income from the islands' sea bed leasing revenues to island communities, rather than central government; legislation placing a duty on government and public bodies to "island-proof" their decisions and support for new "island innovation zones" to boost job opportunities.  The overall vision is to empower island communities.  The Liberal Democrat MSPs for Orkney and Shetland have criticised the document.
