The public is reminded that the final draft of the Rupert’s Valley Development Plan (RVDP) is currently out for public consultation until Friday, 7 October 2016.

 The draft Plan affects anyone living or working in Rupert’s, and any person with a legal interest in affected land, or commercial or personal interest in the future of freight operations serving St Helena. It is important to build as much consensus as possible about the future of Rupert’s Valley, and your participation in plan preparation is important.

The final draft Plan may be examined in Jamestown – at the Office of the Chief Planning Officer, Essex House, the Customer Services Centre and the Public Library – or at Tommy Benjamin’s shop in Rupert’s. It is also available on the SHG website under the Public Consultation section of the Publications page: *
