This policy note has been adopted by the Minister for Environment to supplement Revised 2011 Island Plan Policy NR8 safety zones for hazardous installations.
Under Proposal 30 of the Revised 2011 Island Plan, the Minister for Environment is committed to review the safety zones for hazardous installations, as appropriate, during the plan period.
In light of this commitment, and since the adoption of the 2011 Island Plan, more recent information in relation to the safety zones around La Collette industrial site has been made available. As a result, this information is material to the consideration of any new planning application within the areas highlighted, which will now be considered alongside Policy NR8.
In addition, it is recognised that the gas holder on Tunnell Street has been decommissioned and is no longer considered a hazardous installation, for the purposes and intent of Policy NR8.
