About this guidance
The planning issues raised by the development of a new hospital in Jersey are complex and their consequences are far-reaching.
Planning guidance has been sought to support the development of Our Hospital in relation to two matters:
- the planning process that the Minister for the Environment would expect to see applied and followed in the search for a site for a new hospital
- the issues to be covered in the preparation and submission of a planning application for a new hospital, and which would need to be dealt with in its determination
This advice note has been prepared specifically in response to that request, and therefore includes guidance in respect of those initial considerations that the Minister for the Environment would expect to see addressed in the process of seeking to identify a site for a new hospital.
It also includes guidance about the planning considerations that should be addressed in the preparation of a development proposal for a new hospital. It is these planning considerations which will be determinative to a future decision on a planning application.
