Project Neptune community engagement

Following on from the publication of the Project Neptune report the Transport Minister committed to a full consultation process with communities to discuss the report’s findings and seek views on the structures needed in delivering our Ferry Services.

The Minister has asked Angus Campbell, Chair of the Ferries Communities Board, to lead on this. Angus will be visiting a number of communities across Scotland to gather views before providing a report to the Minister for Transport. Transport Scotland will be supporting Angus in this.

We’re still finalising the details but an outline engagement plan is set out below. We will keep this page updated and use social and local media to keep people informed.

  • 25 January - Arran, Ormidale Pavilion Hall
  • 27 January - Bute, Bank of Ideas
  • 28 January - Cumbrae, The Goldfish Bowl
  • 13 – 14 February – Islay, Jura and Campbeltown
  • 16 February – Raasay
  • 17 February – Skye
  • 2-3 March - Mull/Iona
  • 7-10 March - Eilean Siar, tbc
  • 28-30 March (tbc) - Northern Isles, tbc

In addition to talking to local communities and ferry users we also want to speak to other organisations and bodies with an interest in this area. Some of these discussions may be online. We will reach out to organisations and groups.
