Excerpt from ardrossanherald.com

A plan looking at improving the life on Arran has been published by ministers.

It comes as part of a new action plan aimed at improving life on Scotland’s island communities.

The new National Islands Plan implementation route map was delayed due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

And while it sets out 13 key objectives aimed at making life on the islands better, the Scottish Government states that the route map “does not yet include details of the investment required to deliver our commitments in the National Islands Plan”.

Instead, it says the new document will “inform future Scottish Government spending and investment”.

The route map outlines 13 key objectives for improvement, including dealing with population decline, improving transport, providing better housing and tackling fuel poverty, as well as improving digital connectivity.
