States Strategic Plan

The States of Guernsey's overarching strategic plan and other related plans and policies, which define the priorities for the States, will be updated following the election in April 2016. Until that time the States Strategic Plan will remain in place.

For several years the States have been developing an approach to improve planning and performance and to make government more accountable to the public. Since 2009 this work has been carried forward through the development of a States Strategic Plan (SSP). The original SSP can be viewed pdf icon here [1Mb].

At their March 2013 meeting the States of Guernsey approved the latest revised version of the SSP. A copy of the relevant States Report which incorporates the plan is available to view pdf icon here [2Mb].

The purpose of the SSP is to provide a mechanism to enable the States to determine what they want to achieve over the long-term (25 year horizon). It is designed to encourage more joined up ways of thinking within Guernsey's consensus form of non-party government. The SSP can adapt over time to changing political agendas and it is intended to make government policies compatible with each other rather than contradictory.

At the highest level the direction of the SSP is set by statements of:

· Government Aims

· General Objectives

· Political 'Direction of Travel'

The SSP is not, however, a single document but a family or suite of long-term plans which respond to the Aims, Objectives and Direction of Travel and inter-relate with one another:

· 3 Corporate Policy Plans (for Fiscal & Economic Policy, Social Policy and Environmental Policy) describe the challenges that Guernsey faces in each area and the co-ordinated action being taken by States Departments to deal with them. The Corporate Policy Plans can be viewed pdf icon here [544kb].

· 4 Island Resource Plans (for Population Management, Energy, Strategic Land Use and Island Infrastructure) describe the way in which the States propose to manage or influence the use of Island Resources to support the Corporate Policy Plans.

Please see the full States Report and approved SSP for a fuller explanation.

Currently the States Strategic Monitoring Report can be found by following this link. It includes a set of performance indicators which are used to assess the effects of government policies and whether desired results are being achieved.
