About the consultation

The Government of Jersey has published its draft Ports Policy Framework which contains eight key strategic priorities for the sector:

  • safety and security
  • sustainability
  • strategic air connectivity
  • strategic maritime connectivity and supply chain resilience
  • investment in critical infrastructure
  • development of the harbour and airport estates
  • economic regulation and governance
  • public service obligations

For each sector, the Government has set out a number of key policy positions. It is on these policy positions that feedback and views are sought from partners, industry, and the community.

The Draft Policy Framework for the Ports Sector

Background to the Ports Policy Framework

As part of the incorporation of Ports of Jersey in 2015, the Government of Jersey set objectives for the then newly-incorporated Ports of Jersey, to enable it to continue the provision of essential public services to the Island in a sustainable manner. However, no explicit or specific forward-looking sectoral policy was developed at the time that reflected the objectives of incorporation or Government’s wider strategic goals and vision for this vital sector.

This draft Ports Policy Framework seeks to address that policy gap and, ultimately, to support the development of Jersey’s economy, to deliver greater prosperity, security, and opportunities for Islanders. 

The Ports Policy Ministerial Group (PPMG) was reconstituted by the current Council of Ministers to provide Ministerial direction and support to enable the effective and efficient implementation of key strategic priorities in the ports sector.

Throughout 2023, the PPMG has worked on the draft Ports Policy Framework to help all stakeholders better understand the outputs Government is seeking from the Ports Sector.
