About the consultation
The Minister for Housing and Communities, Deputy Russell Labey, has launched a survey to further understand the future needs of homeowners in Jersey.
The questionnaire focusses on “right sizing” and how the Government can help Islanders to live in homes that are the right size for their needs.
In Jersey, many families are looking for larger homes, while at the same time statistics suggest many people live in homes that are bigger than their current needs.
The Creating Better Homes action plan makes a commitment to develop a right sizing policy for Jersey to help support homeowners who wish to move to smaller, more suitable property but might need some help to do it. This, in turn, will help increase the supply of larger houses for families, for example.
Participating in this survey will provide us with valuable evidence to help us develop a practical and achievable policy that meets the needs of local homeowners and support the availability of family homes in the future.
The survey is aimed at those who own a home. If you don’t own a home, or are a homeowner but not thinking about moving somewhere smaller, we’re still keen to hear from you too and you can use the survey to provide your comments.
The survey is open until 14 March 2022.
