Development of the Policy & Resource Plan

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 focuses on significant policy matters and lays 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 comprised of two stages.

What happens next?

The 23 policy priorities approved by the States in November 2017 marked the final phase in developing the Policy & Resource Plan. The Committees will be held accountable, via annual updates, for progress against these priorities. The first annual update will be in June 2018.

Public engagement

One of the factors that the States have taken 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. To ensure we could also reach the wider community, we held 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 were collated into a report which was shared with all Deputies prior to the debate in June 2017.

You can view the report 'Getting our priorities right' in the downloads section on this page.
