Bridging Island Plan 2022 to 2025

​About the Bridging Island Plan

The Island Plan is hugely important for Jersey. It sets out how, as a community, we'll:

  • create homes
  • strengthen our economy
  • protect and improve our environment
  • provide for a good quality of life
  • enhance what’s special about our island

Under Jersey’s plan-led system, it's the primary consideration in any planning-related decision making.

The policies of the Island Plan have been carefully formulated to achieve the sustainable development of the island with a balance between social, environmental, and economic considerations.

This plan is formed of 4 volumes. Each volume is broken into chapters which share a common theme and address a set of issues through a series of policies and proposals. The policies do not stand in isolation and should be read together, with other relevant policies and the proposals. Each of the policies in the plan is supported by a written justification that explains the considerations that have applied in developing the policy and how it should be used.

Policies are shown in bold type, within a blue box and are identifiable by a policy number and specific title. Proposals are found in a green box. The proposals map shows the spatial aspects of policies across the island and out to territorial limits.

The Bridging Island Plan covers a 3-year plan period, 2022 to 2025. After this period a new longer-term plan will be put in place.
