The Town and Country Planning (Clarendon Parish) Provisional Development Order 2017, Clarendon Parish, Jamaica
The Clarendon Provisional Development Order is a written form of zoning codes to guide local planning actions within 9 local planning areas. Each parish in Jamaica has a Provisonal Development Order to address regions that have been identified as priority areas for growth and development to be done in a sustainable, economically and environmentally sound way. The plan recognizes the threat that climate change poses to food security through land conservation for agriculture within Clarendon. The order also supports the preservation of major fishing sites and livelihoods through proper land management policies. Anticipated outcomes of the policy are resiliency to climate change and disaster through physical infrastructure and sustainable management and use of resources, development of a healthy and educated population, creation of a strong economy built around agriculture, tourism, and manufacturing, and a transparent parish government.
Clarendon’s Local Sustainable Development Plan is a comprehensive, long-term plan for the entire parish of Clarendon. The plan includes an assessment of current conditions of land use, water, agriculture and fisheries, as well as recommendations to be implemented in the future. The plan’s primary objectives include increasing climate change and disaster resilience through the construction of adequate physical infrastructure and sustainable management of natural resources, developing a healthy population by providing adequate access to social services, and creating a strong, diversified economy built around agriculture, as well as tourism and manufacturing. The plan connects agriculture, food aggregators, food wholesalers, and realtors to the primary objectives through a series of strategic objectives designed to use agriculture as a mechanism of economic growth. Some examples include encouraging hotels to purchase from local farmers and promotion of organic agriculture and sustainable tourism.

"This document builds off of previous development plans from Cagayan de Oro by specifically targeting the city's agricultural sector. The plan seeks to achieve three primary objectives: increasing the productivity and competitiveness of the city's farming population; developing employment opportunities in the agricultural sector; and creating strategies to encourage public and private investments in key agricultural areas in order to maximize the sector's growth. Additionally, the development plan identifies ways in which to increase the resiliency and adaptability of farmers in the face of changing weather patterns, develops key transportation infrastructure for increased market access, and implements measures to sustain decreased food insecurity. Upon implementation, this plan is projected to influence the passage of ordinances regarding: sustainable fishing practices; a reiteration of Agriculture and Fishery Council’s role in the City Development Council; the prohibition of the conversion of prime agricultural lands for other purposes; and the development of mechanisms to prime residential/commercial land for future agribusiness investments.
