About the consultation
The 12-week statutory public consultation on the draft bridging Island Plan will help shape the future development of Jersey.
Every representation made as part of the consultation will be published and considered by the independent planning inspector, before the Plan is debated by the States Assembly in spring 2022.
The Plan touches on all areas of island life. All islanders can have their say on the new policies, and
read all the evidence that they are based on.
Reference copies of the draft Plan will also be available from Parish Halls and the St Helier Library.
The Plan delivers on the Government's Common Strategic Policy, and is designed to
