Islanders are being reminded that they have the opportunity discuss the Draft Development Framework for Leale's Yard with planning professionals this Saturday at a public drop-in.
The session on 29th February will be held at the Salvation Army Community Centre & Café on Nocq Road from 10am to 3pm - everyone is welcome.
The Project Team from Planning Services and the consultants Tibbalds will be there to answer questions and discuss the draft framework, which was published on 17th February. The framework is available online at www.gov.gg/developmentframeworks as well as being on display at the former Smilers unit on Southside, The Bridge, for a period of six weeks, ending on 27th March.
Additional sessions with other stakeholders, including the Youth Commission and States Members, will also take place.
Feedback on the draft development framework should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the Planning Service, Sir Charles Frossard House, St Peter Port, GY1 1FH by 27th March 2020.
The draft development framework is designed to provide planning guidance for the mixed-use development of the Leale's Yard Regeneration Area (LYRA) with comprehensive and practical guidance on how policies in the Island Development Plan will be applied to the site.
Once approved, it will become Supplementary Planning Guidance and will be taken into account when considering planning applications on any part of LYRA. Any proposals for development will be expected to align with it.
The consultation gives people the opportunity to have their say so all views can be taken into account when the final version of the Development Framework is considered by the Development & Planning Authority for adoption in April this year.
