Neighbours to be notified of new planning applications

Thu, 09 Feb 2023

Residents on the Island will receive a written notification when planning permission is sought for a neighbouring property.

The move, which came into effect in January, is part of the Built Environment Reform Programme (BERP), which aims to make planning easier to use and more accessible.

This includes improving engagement, with neighbours notified of a planning application, so they have the opportunity to contribute to the planning process in a timely manner.

Following a planning application, any neighbouring properties directly abutting an application site, with a postal address, will receive a written notification that planning permission is being sought. They will not be sent to field numbers or owners of fields.

The weekly publication of planning applications, as well as the requirement to display site notices at properties where planning permission is being sought, will continue.
