Policy & Resource Plan

Share this page

Guernsey - Great today, better tomorrow.

All organisations need a vision and a plan, and the States of Guernsey is no different. To make informed decisions about our priorities, we need to know where we are going - our vision; and how we intend to get there - our plan.

Background

In 2015 the States Assembly approved a number of recommendations from the States Review Committee which aimed to improve the way our government works. As part of this, the Policy & Resources Committee was directed to produce a Policy & Resource Plan to guide the planning and coordination of the work of the States, This plan will focus on significant policy matters and lay down a framework of overall policy assumptions in order to assist Principal Committees in the setting of their policies and priorities.

Development

The development of the first Policy & Resource Plan started as soon as the new Assembly was appointed in May 2016. The development of the plan comprises two stages.

Public engagement

One of the factors that the States will take into account when prioritising their programme of work is the views of the community. To assist the States in this task we sought input on what you consider to be the top priorities that will make the biggest contributions to Guernsey being better tomorrow for you.

During January 2017, four workshops (one for each of the themes) were held with attendees from a number of stakeholder organisations representing a broad cross-section of our community.

These workshops highlighted how challenging it is to prioritise the work of government, but they also provided an insight into what the community wants to see the States, with the help of businesses and voluntary organisations, do over the next few years.

To ensure we could reach the wider community, we help three drop-in sessions; one on a Saturday (28 January) and two on weeknight evenings (30 and 31 January). The purpose of these sessions was to seek feedback on the output from the workshops and what the wider public most wanted government to deliver.

The results of the public engagement have been collated into a report. This report will be shared with all Deputies, and the feedback from the community will assist their decision-making as they finalise their programme of work for the next four years.

You can view the latest document 'Getting our priorities right' in the downloads section on this page, you will also find the supporting media release 'Phase 2 - engagement summary' under the 'useful pages' section.

If you have any questions about the Policy & Resource Plan please contact the Strategy and Policy Team at prp@gov.gg.
