We would like Orkney Islands Council planning department to look favourably on the planning applications for fish farms within Scapa Flow with a mind to granting planning permission to proceed with construction.
Why is this important?
These farms will provide continued economic growth for the County in one of our very important economic sectors. Each farm creates jobs, inward investment, supply chain opportunities with many fringe benefits to smaller communities through their very presence. The importance of fish farming cannot be underestimated in the complex matrix which makes up Orkneys economic model.
