Final draft of revised spatial development plan approved

The Executive Council has approved the final draft revision of the Spatial Development Plan for Statia, which was adopted by the Island Council back in 2011. Broadly, the plan aims to better organise land use, including how and where to build. Anyone applying for building or other development permits must demonstrate how these developments will comply with the plan.

The final draft is currently available for review for a period of six weeks as of 2 January 2023, including at the government office, the ENI and the public library.  You may also review the documents, including the decree and the plan, online at
