Island Plan listed for extraordinary sitting of Tynwald

Due to take place after House of Keys next week

The Island Plan will be brought back to Tynwald at an extraordinary sitting of the court next week.

The document – which sets out government's five year plan – is listed on the Register of Business.

Permission has been granted for the extra sitting after a request from the chief minister - it will take place after the House of Keys on Tuesday, 1 February.

Alfred Cannan will attempt to move the document and, this time, gain Tynwald approval for it.

During a sitting of the court earlier this month debate on the plan was halted by eight MHKs with Alfred Cannan pledging to bring it back at a later date.

This time Mr Cannan has put forward a revised motion which aims to move that Tynwald approves the plan.

The motion differs to the one he put before the court earlier this month – that asked members to approve the plan, note that as a living document it will be updated over the course of the administration, note the requirement for department plans and further note the housing and communities board proposed workstreams.
