National Islands Plan through a COVID Lens: survey results

Summary of key findings after the six main local authorities with islands were invited to consider the impact of the (COVID-19) pandemic on the delivery of National Island Plan commitments and how these should be prioritised going forward.

Priority Strategic Objectives

In question one, participating authorities were asked to reflect on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and identify the most important Strategic Objectives (SO) within the NIP to best support recovery and renewal. Transport was highlighted as the most significant SO to best support recovery across our islands. The next SO selected by LAs was Sustainable Economic Development and this was followed by Digital Connectivity as the third most important NIP delivery priority. The breakdown of responses are noted in Annex A.
