About the consultation
As part of the Island Plan Review, AECOM were commissioned to independently undertake a Sustainability Appraisal (SA) of the draft bridging Island Plan. The SA considers how the draft bridging Island Plan seeks to address key environmental, social and economic sustainability issues that the Island is facing.
Being an independent evaluation of the Plan, the SA helps us to understand if the plan is appropriate to meet the needs of our community and economy, whilst also continuing to protect our environment. It helps us to ensure that the future development of Island is beneficial for all of Jersey.
Comments on the Sustainability Appraisal are being invited for an 8-week period, in tandem to the draft bridging Island Plan consultation which is already underway.
Comments will be considered by the Minister for the Environment and later by independent planning inspectors.
The SA comprises of three reports:
