Huge public response to Alderney's Island Plan


A quarter of the public in Alderney has responded to a call by the States for residents to have their say on the island's future.

So many responses were received that a States' debate on the Island Plan has been moved from December 2021 to January 2022.

The States said that taking additional time to consider responses was the right move because of the “extremely large number of comments” received. In total, 458 people took part in the consultation exercise. 

“We are delighted with the level of involvement the island has shown and it has exceeded our expectations,” said Ian Carter, the Deputy Chairman of the Policy & Finance Committee, which is the senior committee of the States of Alderney.

“This amount of feedback requires due diligence in the way we process and present the information - so we need more time.”

Consultation responses will be used to help the States of Alderney shape the final version of the Island Plan, a document which will guide future policy across Alderney's administration, including on the economy, connectivity, community development, the environment, energy and governance. 

“We are hoping an executive summary will be available at next week’s Policy & Finance Committee which will give an early indication of islanders’ priorities but shaping the actual Plan will take a little more time than we originally anticipated,” said Mr Carter.

Issues raised frequently in the consultation included the case for enhancing transport resilience to and from the island, developing more facilities, protecting natural habitats and improving scrutiny of and within the States of Alderney.
