Island Plan on a page

The Plan on a Page brings together the Island Plan Vision and themes and the Economic Strategy’s Economic Ambitions; and outlines the Strategic Programmes that feed into the achievement of the overall Island Plan vision. Tynwald provided strong support for the Economic Strategy and its incorporation into the Island Plan. Our Redefined Strategic Priorities will progress our vision and themes.

Island Plan Vision


We have an Island where everyone feels safe, our economy is secure, our health and educational system supports everyone and we have housing, food and energy, and transport security.


Our Island is vibrant, diverse and welcoming, providing excellent educational, recreational and economic opportunities for all, and our businesses are able to grow with confidence, accessing the skills and people required now and into the future.


We look after and nurture our Island and our resources, driving forward our local agenda towards a fair, inclusive and sustainable society and environment.
