Planning in the Channel Islands

Thursday, 24 September 2020 at 4:00PM -
Saturday, 26 September 2020 at 2:00PM
Radisson Blu, Rue de l'Etau Saint Helier, JE2 3WF
RTPI South West

Jersey and Guernsey are situated off the French coast of Normandy and form part of the RTPI south west region. As not part of the UK or EU, it has its own independent laws, elections and representative bodies thereby operating under a different planning system.

The challenges of delivering sustainable development within the confines of an island environment and how supply and demand are managed are particularly pertinent.

This event proposes a CPD event starting on the Thursday evening and finishing with local tours on the Saturday. It will look to include a Planning Law updates specific for the Channel Islands, introduction to the planning system and key differences relative to the UK. This will include planning control extending over territorial waters, the challenges and opportunities this brings particularly when reviewing the challenges of encouraging tourism and managing resources in the climate change agenda. The Bailiwicks are well placed as having signed an Environmental Charter which provides a 10-point agreement including pledges to ‘control and reduce the negative impacts of the island’s activities on the environment; to contribute to the development of scientific knowledge with regard to island marine environments and to move towards a complete ban on single use plastics’. How is this affecting future development in this area and what lessons can we learn to roll out into the UK planning system?
