Residential space standards

This supplementary planning guidance sets standards for the specification of new homes to ensure that new residential accommodation can provide islanders with good quality homes, to assist with the interpretation and application of bridging Island Plan H1, Housing quality and design.

The adoption and application of revised minimum space standards for residential development will help ensure that new homes meet the needs of a diverse range of users, taking into account factors such as the ageing population and cultural differences; that they are adequate in size, fit for purpose and are adaptable to the changing needs of their occupants over time; and that they are appropriate relative to the context of needing to deliver more homes whilst creating great places to live.

This guidance supersedes any previous guidance issued in relation to residential space standards.
