About the consultation

​The policies of the Island Plan do not generally support the principle of the redevelopment of glasshouse sites outside of the built-up area and only allow their development for other uses by exception, and only where they are redundant and derelict.  

There may, however, be exceptional circumstances where the clearance of redundant and derelict glass and the limited development of a site, or part of a site, for other uses outside of the built-up area may be supported. Exceptional support for the limited residential development of a redundant and derelict glasshouse site might only arise where other more appropriate forms of development suited to a countryside location have been explored and discounted for justifiable reasons.

In order to assess whether a derelict and redundant glasshouse site could be considered suitable for a limited amount of development, including the development of homes, the Minister for the Environment has prepared draft supplementary planning guidance. This guidance has to be aligned with the policies of the Island Plan but it sets out an interpretation of planning policy which would, upon adoption, be used to inform decisions on planning applications for the redevelopment of derelict and redundant glasshouse sites. 

This guidance is principally aimed at the owners of glasshouse sites and other stakeholders in the agricultural and development industries, as well as being of potential interest to residents who live in proximity to glasshouse sites. 

The Minister has issued this draft guidance for consultation in order to gather views about its content. This will include formal consultation with relevant ministers including the Minister for Sustainable Economic Development and the Minister for Housing and Communities.
