This consultation paper aims pending the preparation of the Area Plan for the East, to provide guidance to developers and the public alike on our vision for the key gateway area to the Island and Douglas.
Over the next few years the Centre of Douglas has the potential to be radically transformed through a number of major initiatives centred upon the Douglas Town Centre Regeneration activity and the refurbishment of the Promenade. The development opportunities identified in Lower Douglas will play a key complementary role in helping to deliver this transformation.
The consultation closed on the 19th June 2012. The Department has now compiled a summary of responses document, which can be found below. The Department is currently considering these responses with the view of publishing a final version of the Interim Planning Guidance.

|Public Sector Pensions||Human Resources||Interim Injury Benefit Scheme 2012 |
One of the consequences of the introduction of the Unified Scheme is that the current Injury Benefit arrangements for those affected employment groups will no longer be valid, as some of the benefits provided for by the former Injury Benefit Schemes are based upon the retirement provisions of the former pension schemes which, following the introduction of the Unified Scheme from 1 April 2012, are no longer applicable.
In order to maintain access to current Injury Benefit provisions, on an ongoing but interim basis, the PSPA is proposing to make the proposed Interim Injury Benefit Scheme 2012 at the earliest opportunity
This scheme seeks to keep in place the current Injury Benefit arrangements for those employment groups covered by the former civil service and analogous schemes and the former National Health Service and Firefighters schemes.This Scheme does not seek to reduce any level of benefits currently available to these employment groups.
