National Transport Policy
A presentation has been held on the consultation being done by Transport Scotland on the next National Transport Policy. Feedback has been invited on this up to 23rd October and you can have your say here. The lifetime of this strategy is 20 years so it’s important to make sure our needs as an island are represented.
Take a look at this presentation for all the information you need to know.
Scottish Tourism Tax
The Scottish Government is consulting on the principles of a locally determined visitor levy (tourist tax). They're holding events in different parts of the country to provide an opportunity for everyone who has an interest to discuss and inform them on what a Scottish Visitor Levy might look like. They want to hear your views and the direction you think it should take, as well as the issues you think a new tax should seek to address
A session will be held here in Shetland. We would encourage anyone involved in the tourism sector in Shetland to go along and share your views. There are two time slots on Wednesday 20th November at Shetland Colllege at 2pm and 6pm. Attendance is free but booking is reccomended to ensure you will be able to attend. You can book your place here.
