A few random quotes to whet your appetite….

The following quotes are taken randomly from the planning consultation and are not necessarily in context:

It is essential that the planning system considers, and makes appropriate provision for the identified national needs of the entire economy and assists in steering economic development to the most appropriate locations.. The economy should not be constrained by a shortage of land for economic development uses.

Although for planning purposes, it is not defined as economic development, it is recognised that house building and construction do play a valuable role in the economy.

In so doing, the planning system will aim to:

(i) Recognise that economic development can often deliver environmental and social benefits;

(ii) Recognise the wider benefits of economic development and consider these alongside any adverse impacts;

(iii) Recognise that one of the benefits of economic development will that it may attract entrepreneurs who will invest in the Isle of Man economy.


Does it give you concrete (‘scuse the pun) information about what is to be allowed?
