ARUP's findings and recommendations are published in their Final Report, which can be downloaded below
The Building and Development Control Committee adopted their recommendations, and is now implementing the required improvements in a phased programme having recruited an experienced Planning Officer from Jersey in June 2015 to carry out this task.
Procedural improvements have already been made and work is advanced on those changes requiring amendments to the law. The Land Use Plan review is in progress. Phase 1 report was published in March 2016 and at Public Inquiry in April 2016 .Phase 2 is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2017.
Regular progress reports will be made to the States through the Billet and will posted on this website.
