People who live, work or study in the north mainland of Shetland have until next Thursday to contribute to the ‘Nort Natters’ community engagement. 

Nort Natters events aim to gather views and to understand what people like about the area; what changes would make a difference for them and their loved ones; and how they could help bring those changes to life.   The initiative is led by Shetland Islands Council, along with a range of organisations across health and care, emergency services, business, housing, and community and voluntary groups. 

Nort Natters events took place last weekend in Brae, Mossbank, Northmavine and Nesting with over 460 people engaged in-person or through the online survey. 

Ideas and insights from this community engagement will be summarised and shared later this year, and used to inform a range of plans and strategies across the north mainland in 2023 and beyond.

A drop-in session will take place at Brae Public Hall on Thursday 29th November, from 2.30pm till 6.30pm to see and add to the themes and ideas that have emerged from ‘Nort Natters’ conversations so far.  Anyone interested in finding out more is welcome to attend. 

More information about ‘Nort Natters’, including the survey link and downloadable questionnaires can be found on the council’s website at  The deadline for all responses is Thursday 17th November.
