For any level of development on any part of the land you will need to seek a permit application from the National Environment Service which will be decided upon by the Island Environment Authority.  This is not a process intended to restrict your development but more to ensure that any intended development is carefully assessed to ensure that no problems will occur to the developer or the environment.

Examples for the scope of development include:

  • Vegetation clearance
  • Earthworks of any type or magnitude
  • Construction of any type
  • Filling of wetlands
  • Coastal development

Some levels of development are quickly decided upon and others especially those that interfere with Specific Areas of Concern may take some time to gather the correct information and determine the least detrimental method of continuing with the proposed development.

For further information please click on the Advisory & Compliance Division.
