“The Physical Development Plan 2023 (Amended) is now in the final stages of adoption.  The Plan sets out the government's vision for developing Barbados and provides a spatial framework to help deliver the government's mandate. A review of the Physical Development Plan Amended 2003 was completed in 2017 and produced a Draft Physical Development Plan Amended 2017 (Draft PDP Amended 2017). In the intervening period, several circumstances and events occurred that necessitate the review and targeted update of the Draft PDP Amended 2017 to ensure its currency and applicability to changed circumstances in Barbados. The Physical Development Plan 2023 (Amended)  embodies further changes to the draft document that was made available to the public as a 2017 amendment.
