Three week extension for planning consultation

Thu, 30 Nov 2017

The public is being given longer to respond to a consultation on the Island's planning system.

Manx residents have been given an extra three weeks until January 8th to submit feedback on the proposals.

The consultation includes 55 questions on the planning system, including whether it should be easier for the Government to change planning policy and whether more developments can take place without planning permission.

The Cabinet Office is conducting the consultation as part of the Programme for Government pledge to create a planning system that supports sustainable growth.

The consultation period has been extended as a number of organisation, including local authorities, asked for longer to put their responses together.

Full details of the proposals can be found on the consultation section of the Government's website.
