Reform of the Planning System - Public Consultation in relation to Secondary Legislation

Closed 15 Sep 2019

Opened 2 Aug 2019


A Planning Action Plan was laid before Tynwald on 15 May 2018.  It included a commitment to make changes to the existing Town and Country Planning Act, 1999.  A Planning Bill has been produced and has been supported by both branches of Tynwald.  It is currently awaiting Royal Assent and it is envisaged it will be brought back to Tynwald before the end of the year. 

This consultation now seeks views in relation to a number of pieces of secondary legislation which are required to implement these changes.

This consultation is part of a joint project between the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture and the Cabinet Office to take forward the Reform of the Planning System.

Why We Are Consulting

To obtain the views of the public in relation to the proposed secondary legislation which are required to implement the changes contained within the Planning Bill.

What Happens Next

After the consultation, the results will be reviewed and any necessary amendments made to the draft legislation.  It is anticipated that this consideration by Tynwald will take place before the end of 2019.

A summary of responses will be published within three months of the closing date for this consultation and will be made available on the Consultation Hub, or by contacting the named officer.
