The Government of Jersey has embarked upon a review of its land use plan: The Island Plan. The development of the draft Island Plan is well underway, with a public consultation on the draft Plan due to take place in Spring 2021, followed then by an Examination in Public process.
An invitation to tender has now opened, seeking to secure a team or consortium of Planning Inspectors, together with supporting officers, to lead the Examination of the draft Island Plan.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in ensuring that the draft Island Plan is adequate, and will further the sustainable wellbeing of islanders by protecting the environment, sustaining a vibrant economy and ensuring that the needs of the community can be adequately met.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and anticipated impacts of Brexit, the Government has opted to take forward a shorter-term Island Plan (2022-2024), followed subsequently by a longer-term Island Plan (2025-2034). This unique approach aims to ensure that necessary updates are made to the now dated planning framework of the Revised 2011 Island Plan, but without making longer-term commitments in the face of the uncertainty caused by both the pandemic and Brexit. In all respects, this shorter-term Island Plan needs to be comprehensive, despite being in place for a shorter period.
