Housing completions 2011-2020
The principal housing data sources for new homes with planning approval, under construction and completed, are derived from two separate database systems maintained and operated by the regulatory planning and building control functions within the Government of Jersey Infrastructure, Housing and Environment Department.
These are separate systems and analysis of the data involves cross referencing of the development process, from the grant of planning permission, to the award of building bye-law consent through to the development stages of commencement / under construction and final completion.
Notwithstanding the need to extract and analyse data from two separate systems in order to provide a comprehensive view of permission and completions, the data sources are the best that is available, and any anomalies are considered to be minor in nature, with all of the reviews undertaken generally highlighting unreported permissions and completions, rather than over reporting.
This data excludes completions for bedsit and staff / holiday accommodation.
