LGA peer review report

LGA Peer Review

The Corporate Plan 2021-25 committed to holding a review of Planning Services. This was independently undertaken by the Local Government Association (LGA) in May 2022. The peer review report was published as a result.

The report set out a series of recommendations. These are broadly grouped into actions which will:

  • progress the local plan (Island Planning Strategy)
  • improve our pre-application advice offer 
  • improve our development management function (how we determine planning applications)
  • improve our enforcement function

Planning Services will take action to:

  • improve processes and planning outcomes
  • improve communication
  • improve community engagement
Progress is reviewed every quarter.
