The Department of Planning is pleased to announce the launch of the second series of free, quarterly Planning Clinics.
The purpose of these Planning Clinics is to provide members of the public with an opportunity to obtain planning related advice outside of the Department of Planning’s normal operating hours. The primary goal is to improve planning literacy in Bermuda by creating access to a knowledgeable team of Planning officials, who can assist the general public by providing information on the planning process in an informal and approachable setting.
The first series of quarterly Planning Clinics kicked-off earlier this year in August. These clinics came following a House Assembly reading of the statement entitled “Streamlining the Planning Process” by Minister of Home Affairs, the Hon. Walter Roban JP MP. In this statement, the Minister announced work being done to institute Planning Clinics, in addition to outlining plans for a paperless application system, engagement with key stakeholders, and improving the level of transparency to the overall Planning process.
The Department of Planning has been instrumental in ensuring that quarterly Planning Clinics are available and beneficial to the Bermuda public. The Department of Planning encourages the community to take full advantage of this opportunity and welcomes residents to engage in meaningful talks around Planning in Bermuda.
