Attempts to restrict development in the Forest fail

Attempts to restrict development in the Forest have failed in the States, as politicians debate the Island Development Plan for a third day.

This morning, Deputy David De Lisle led efforts to remove what's known as 'Forest West' from the list of 'Local Centres' - areas earmarked for more development under the Plan.

The Development Plan includes two Local Centres in the Forest, one east of the airport, and a second, to the west.

Deputy David De Lisle argued that the policy would mean the otherwise rural parish could become over developed and the western Local Centre should be removed.

Development and Planning Authority members emphasised that even within Local Centres development would be limited, and deputies voted against removing Forest West.
