The future use of the Sullom Voe harbour area will be subject to a series of public workshops starting tomorrow (2nd of Feb) in Yell.

NAFC Marine Centre and its spatial planning team have won a contract to develop a masterplan, and its specialists will hold four workshops in the coming week. They will take place at:

  • Saturday 2 February – North Ness Public Hall, Ulsta, Yell, workshop 10.30am – 1.00pm
  • Monday 4 February – NAFC, Scalloway, drop in, 3.30pm – 7.30pm
  • Tuesday 5 February – Ollaberry Hall, workshop, 6.30pm – 9.00pm
  • Wednesday 6 February – Brae Community Hall, drop in, 3.30pm – 7.30pm

The council’s director of infrastructure services John Smith said: “Throughput at the Sullom Voe Terminal is changing, and we have already seen interest from different sectors and groups about the potential for development in the area.

“The council is keen to hear from those communities directly connected to Sullom Voe and Yell Sound, and these workshops are a great opportunity for people to have their say. We hope as many as possible can attend the events and share their ideas and aspirations.”

The team are aware there have been some problems with booking a place for the events. Please note that you do not need to book to attend, everyone is welcome. The team look forward to meeting you.
