Changes to planning legislation are being proposed as part of the Built Environment Reform Programme.

Action is now being undertaken through a public consultation on amendments to secondary legislation under the Town and Country Planning Act 1999. 

The Isle of Man Government propose the following changes: 

  • Reviewing the ability to trigger/participate in an appeal;
  • Introducing a new fast track householder appeal process;
  • Streamlining the planning application and appeals processes to focus on delivering planning services to the public;

Individuals can participate by submitting their views and suggestions through the governments Consultation Hub.

The public consultation is open until January 26.
