The ambitions of Eco Island fall into four themes for action. They are:
These themes are described in more detail here.
For the Island Strategic Partnership, making Eco Island happen is the responsibility of four Key Delivery Partnerships (KDP). These partnership bodies will work together to deliver Eco Island. This is where partnership will work to deliver sustainable communities and change.

The structure and working of the ISP is explained here
Key Delivery Partnerships will provide information about their performance to the Island Strategic Partnership. This will be done very three months and reports will be posted here on this website. Information about how we will see the difference can be found by clicking here.
One of the ways in which the ISP will work to achieve Eco Island is through a set of agreements with the government on how key priorities will be achieved. Building on previous agreements, a new Local Area Agreement, being implemented during 2008, will be used to measure of how well the Eco Island Sustainable Community Strategy, and our local partnerships are working toward achieving our aims. Information about the 2008 Local Area Agreement between the Island and the government on measuring change is available here.
During 2008 and 2009, a new spatial plan for the Island is being developed. This will have an important influence on how Eco Island is realised. This new plan replaces the existing Unitary Development Plan and will be called the Island Plan. It will have a major influence on the future development of the Island, its businesses, homes and environment. More information about the new Island Plan and how it is being prepared is available here.
A number of events are being planned, that will give people, businesses and organisations an opportunity to get involved and help to develop an Eco Island. We have created a section of this Eco Island website where future events will be publicised and the details of past events made available. Click here for details.
