Area Plan for the South
The Area Plan for the South was adopted by the Department of Infrastructure and approved by Tynwald on 20 February 2013.
The Area Plan should be read in conjunction with the Isle of Man Strategic Plan, which contains broad policies covering the whole of the Island. Click here to find out more about the Strategic Plan.
The Area Plan for the South includes proposals which guide development at the local level and covers Rushen, Arbory, Malew, Port St Mary, Port Erin and Castletown.
Following a High Court judgment on the 11 February 2014 in relation to Section 5 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1999, the High Court has quashed Landscape Proposal 21 of the approved Area Plan for the South. As a result of this judgment, Landscape Proposal 21 does not now form part of the Area Plan for the South, which was brought into operation by the Town and Country Planning (Area Plan for the South) Order 2012. There are no other consequential changes to the Area Plan for the South.
