As part of the initial consultation phase of The Pier Project, we are delighted to share with you the consultants' first report. 

This report has been compiled by our project consultants, Alan Jones Associates, and is based on the responses to the survey issued to all adult residents on Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre in December/January. 

This is the first step of our planned community consultation. Unfortunately, we have been unable to proceed with the next steps due to further Covid-19 restrictions announced just before Christmas. We are hopeful that the consultation will be able to continue as planned over the next couple of months, so please look out for further information in due course. 

In the meantime, should anyone have any questions regarding The Pier Project, please do not hesitate to ask us.

Housing Project: Design Plan
Posted 02/10/2022

The project is progressing well, and Directors are continuing to work with the consultants to plan the building of the two x 2-bed bungalows, which will be built on the land at the end of Johnston’s Road. The majority of the funds for the project are expected to be provided from the Island & Rural Housing Fund. 

Our consultants have produced the final design for the builds (please view below), following the Housing Needs Survey conducted in our community earlier this year. Each property will have its own garden and parking. We are on track to commence building in 2023, and we will keep provide updates as the project progresses.
