Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 13.08.2013 (Article Archived on 10.09.2013)

PUBLIC
CONSULTATION



PROPOSED
GENERAL DEVELOPMENT ORDER



 



The Land Development Control
Authority proposes to introduce a General Development Order which, if approved
by ExCo, will mean that the public will no longer need to submit development
applications for a range of small, un-contentious development proposals.



 



The General Development Order will
create 14 categories of "Permitted Development" which, provided
specific limitations and conditions are met, will no longer need a development
application. The specific limitations and conditions are necessary to ensure
the right balance between, on the one hand, removing controls and on the other
hand, avoiding bad-neighbour developments and harm to the Island's heritage.



 



To help in finding the right
balance, the Land Development Control Authority would like your views.



 



The wording of the draft General
Development Order is relatively complicated, to make it comprehensive without
creating loopholes that could result in poor development. An explanatory guide
is therefore available with it and they are both available from Essex House and
from the Public Library, Jamestown. Digital copies are also available on the
SHG website
www.sainthelena.gov.sh



 



Comments on the draft General
Development Order should be submitted in writing to the Planning Officer, Essex
House, Jamestown, not later than Friday 30 August.



 



All comments will be presented to
the Land Development Control Authority and, as part of transparency and
openness of the Planning Service, will also be available to the public.



The Authority's recommendations
will be presented to Council Committee and Executive Council for a final
decision.



 



Alfred Isaac, Planning Officer

& Development Control
