Island Plan 2022 to 2025

Bridging Island Plan

About the Bridging Island Plan 

The Island Plan is of utmost strategic significance to Jersey: it sets out how key community aspirations and needs are to be met and shapes how future development will contribute positively to the sustainable wellbeing of the Island. 

Further to the adoption of P.168/2020 in February 2021, the States Assembly agreed to the implementation of a bridging island plan that will exist between two longer-term plans (the current Island Plan 2011 to 2021; and a future Island Plan 2025 to 2034). 

The new bridging Island Plan will set the means to facilitate the island’s positive future growth over a period of significant uncertainty and provide a new framework against which planning decisions will be made. The plan will be key to ensuring the delivery of sustainable development that will meet the needs of the community, balancing the future economic, environmental and social needs of the island. 

Whilst the bridging Island Plan will be in force for a shorter period of time than the usual 10-year Island Plan, it will nevertheless be equally as comprehensive in scope and applied in the same way, to further the purpose of the Planning and Building (Jersey) Law 2002.

Bridging Island Plan

The review process

Because of its significance, the process by which a draft Island Plan is consulted upon; independently examined; amended and debated, before being approved by the States, is set out in primary and secondary legislation.

Planning and Building (Jersey) Law 2002

Planning and Building (Island Plan) (Jersey) Order 2009

Covid-19 (Island Plan) (Jersey) Regulations 2021

The draft bridging Island Plan includes detailed draft polices, plans and proposals, which will be subject to extensive consultation before being considered by independent planning inspectors at an Examination in Public. During the initial 12-week consultation period, States Members can lodge amendments to the plan, which will also be considered by the inspectors. This 12-week period commences upon lodging of the Bridging Island Plan proposition. 

The inspectors will submit a report to the Minister for the Environment which, when published, will re-open the opportunity for States Members to propose their final amendments to the plan, before the Minister then lodges final proposed amendments ahead of a debate in the States to seek approval of the Plan.
