The third Annual Monitoring Report for the Island Development Plan has been published

Wednesday 24 November 2021

The third Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) has been published and concludes that the policies of the Island Development Plan (IDP) are performing as intended: through ensuring development is carried out in such a way as to deliver the social, economic and environmental objectives of the States of Guernsey, in so far as they relate to land use.

The AMRs include analysis of decisions on planning applications, appeals, findings of surveys and research by the Planning Service, as well as data collected from other States Committees in order to assess the continued effectiveness of the policies in the IDP in delivering the objectives of the States. Ongoing monitoring enables the IDP to adapt to changing circumstances.

The report concludes that:

The report also shows that there was a high rate of approval of planning applications in 2019 and 2020 (only 131 applications were refused out of 3,081 applications determined) and only 4 appeals against refusal of planning permission were decided during 2019/2020, 2 of which were allowed and 2 dismissed.

Deputy Victoria Oliver, President of the Development & Planning Authority, said:

"We have learnt a lot from this report and it's really important that we compare our data with the previous AMRs so that we can identify trends, things to watch and things that may need to be actioned.

"I'm also pleased that for this latest AMR, efforts have been made to create a more user-friendly format so that people can easily understand the results and conclusions. The AMR now includes 9 infographics that summarise key detail, as well as providing more concise and visually engaging comprehensive detail and updates on actions from the previous 2018 AMR."

The 2020 AMR includes data for both 2019 and 2020. A report was not produced last year for 2019 because the focus was instead on a policy letter to direct the scope and purpose of the 5-year review of the IDP. The States debated the scope and added to it but, as a result of the pandemic, resolved to pause the review so that it could consider it later, alongside the priorities for the island's recovery.
