About the consultation

You're invited to comment on the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry’s recommendation to demolish the site of the former Haut de la Garenne children’s home.

Before the Council of Ministers make a final decision about the future of this building, Islanders are being asked to share their views to ensure all voices are heard.

The consultation asks you to reflect on a number of issues associated with the proposal to demolish the building. There is also an opportunity to share your views about the future use of the site.

Public meeting dates

Open afternoons at Jersey Accommodation and Activity Centre (JAAC)

The Jersey Accommodation and Activity Centre, situated at the former Haut de la Garenne site, will be holding two open afternoons. You'll be able to see the facilities currently available and will be able to complete the consultation questionnaire. There is no need to book.
