At the Executive Council meeting held on 9 January 2007, Council considered a set of draft Regulations relating to fees for the Land Development Control Plan, a short Bill to provide for a minor amendment to the English Law (Application) Ordinance, 2005, an Information Paper concerning the procedure for achieving approved investment status and an application for a Licence under the Fish and Fish Products Marketing Regulations, 2005 from Argos Atlantic Cold Stores.

PRESS RELEASE


 


 


At the Executive Council meeting held on 9 January 2007, Council considered a set of draft Regulations relating to fees for the Land Development Control Plan, a short Bill to provide for a minor amendment to the English Law (Application) Ordinance, 2005, an Information Paper concerning the procedure for achieving approved investment status and an application for a Licence under the Fish and Fish Products Marketing Regulations, 2005 from Argos Atlantic Cold Stores.


 


Under section 20 of the Land Planning and Development Control Ordinance, members of the public have the right to examine the Land Development Control Plan and to receive copies ‘on payment of such fees as may from time to time be prescribed’.  Council considered draft Regulations to enable a fee to be charged for the Plan.  In arriving at a fee, Council considered that sales of copies of the Plan should be on a full cost recovery basis, and noted that it would be available for inspection by members of the public at the Planning Office in the Legal, Lands and Planning Department and the Public Library free of charge and will soon be on the SHG website.  Council therefore advised that the fee to be charged for copies of the Land Development Control Plan should be £17 per copy to allow for printing and administration costs.


 


A short Bill to amend the English Law (Application) Ordinance, 2005 was approved for public consultation.  Council noted that this Bill sought to amend Section 2 of the existing Ordinance by removing a few words which add nothing to the meaning of it and could cause ambiguity if left as part of the Ordinance.  The Bill was circulated for public consultation on 19 January 2007.


 


The Tourism and Investment Policies came into effect on 1 January 2007.  Since the publication of the Policies in November 2006, officials within SHG have been developing procedures to support both policies.  Included in these is the process for achieving Approved Investment Status, which involves an application being sent to the St Helena Development Agency, which responds to the enquiry by sending out an Approved Investment pack and application form.  The pack and form, which includes guidelines for completion of the application form, have recently been finalised and were copied to Council for information.  It is intended that the pack and forms be piloted for a period of three months following which an assessment will be carried out.


 


An application for a Licence from Argos Atlantic Cold Stores to manufacture fish and fish products under the Fish and Fish Products (Marketing) Regulations, 2005 was approved for a period of twelve months from 17 January 2007, as recommended by the Competent Authority.
