Plan Cayman: Advancing the Vision Through Community Engagement

As part of the ongoing commitment to transparent and inclusive planning, the Central Planning Authority (CPA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Planning, Agriculture, Housing,Infrastructure, Transportation and Development (PAHIT&D), the Department of Planning (DoP), and the Ministry of Sustainability and Climate Resiliency (MSCR), is pleased to announce updated public consultation sessions for: “’Plan Cayman” The National Development Plan, Planning Statement.

What is Plan Cayman?

Plan Cayman is the name for Cayman’s long-range comprehensive development plan, which will be used to guide physical development and overall land use in the Cayman Islands. It is comprised of three key elements:

Planning Statement: A high-level policy defining land use zones and identifying land use priorities for Cayman.

Area Plans and Zoning Map: Detailed policies for different locations in Cayman and map assigning land use zones.

Development and Planning Regulations: Legislation to support the Planning Statement, Area Plans, and Zoning Map.

At this stage, we are inviting feedback on the updated Planning Statement document, which is the first phase of the development plan review process. This document has been drafted to incorporate the policies previously identified within the National Planning Framework (NPF) document. This consultation is just one stage in the Development Plan review process, which will also include the preparation of a series of Area Plans, each of which will be made available for public consultation.
