Public Inquiry for New Hospital Plans

Wednesday 25 April 15:21

A public inquiry on new outline plans for a future hospital for Jersey will be held later this year.

It’s the second independent public inquiry held on plans for the Island’s hospital. The first was held in November 2017. On the basis of the inspector’s report on planning application (P/2017/0990) the Minister for the Environment rejected the scheme. New plans (PP/2018/0507) were submitted earlier this month.

The inquiry has been called so that an independent planning inspector can examine the planning issues in depth and ensure the proposal is consistent with Island Plan policy and is the right decision for Jersey. 

The Minister for the Environment can do this under the 2002 Planning and Building law because the proposed public infrastructure development ‘would be likely to have a significant effect on the interests of the whole or a substantial part of the population of Jersey’.
The inquiry will be a structured and inclusive forum, to ensure an open discussion, with all parties able to present their opinions and have evidence tested, before the inspector makes a recommendation. The Minister for the Environment will make the final decision, once he has considered the inspector’s written conclusions.
A date for the inquiry will be announced soon, and Islanders invited to notify the inspector they would like to speak at the inquiry or give their views in writing.
