Island Development Plan

Share this page

The Island Development Plan (IDP) sets out the land planning policies for the whole of Guernsey in a single document and was adopted by the States of Guernsey on the 2nd November 2016. The IDP replaces both the Urban Area Plan and the Rural Area Plan with immediate effect.

Planning policies seek to balance social, environmental and economic considerations to ensure that new development supports the public interest. These planning policies are grouped together to form a Development Plan.

The law places a duty on the Authority to produce a Development Plan for the island which allow the States to manage development across the island and set out the factors it will take into account when deciding planning applications.

A Development Plan sets out what can be built, where, and how buildings are used. It is used to plan strategically, looking at future needs to be addressed, what change is likely to happen and where, and what policies are needed to achieve this.

The Authority must consider the Island Development Plan policies when deciding applications for planning permission.
