Produced by the Environment (Infrastructure and Environment)
Authored by POS Enterprises Ltd and published on 20 Dec 2019
Cost: £33,600.00


​POS Enterprises, the operational arm of the Planning Officers Society, was appointed by the States of Jersey to undertake a review of its Development Control Service.

The recommendations follow the third independent audit of the department by a review team from the Planning Officers Society.

The review's 61 recommendations include:

  • an Island Plan review which focuses on more straightforward policies for decision makers
  • reconsidering the introduction of a Jersey Infrastructure Levy
  • reviewing of the performance management process
  • clarifying the management responsibilities within planning
  • improving the pre-application system
  • updating guidance from the policy section
  • moving towards a system of positive development management rather than development control

The report is released together with the response by the department and the Minister for Environment, Deputy John Young.
