Applications could be displayed in every parish hall, with the cost paid by the applicant, and people may also be given up to 21 days to lodge their disapproval, instead of the current seven.
In the States yesterday, Senator Philip Ozouf, president of the Environment and Public Services Committee, agreed to meet the Constables’ Committee to ask them about helping people to have more access to planning applications.
He was responding to a proposition from Senator Paul Le Claire, which was almost immediately withdrawn.
Senator Le Claire asked that people could be given a 28-day window to make an objection.
He also sought to have all plans displayed in the relevant parish halls.
