Achievements so far
A number of internal moves and relocations within our office buildings has enabled us to make better use of existing space and position some teams closer to colleagues they work with.
- Jersey Property Holdings moved from three sites into a fully open plan accommodation at Maritime House, reducing the area they occupied by around half
- Customs and Immigration reduced occupied space by 3,000 sq ft
- Vacated sites of d'Hautree and South Hill have been used to meet critical business need and generate income
Central administration building
To improve services for customers, a full feasibility study is underway into providing one main government administration building with a central customer service centre.
The preferred site, as agreed by the Council of Ministers is Philip Le Feuvre House / La Motte Street.
The development of the central adminsitration building and other associated projects will enable the re-design or disposal of several buildings and provide an enhanced, modern environment for customers and staff.
We want to deliver modern, safe and affordable healthcare for Jersey. Our Future Hospital will address the pressures from an increasingly ageing population, and greater demands and expectations of our health service.
States of Jersey Police Headquarters
The new headquarters will provide a building which is fit for purpose from which the States of Jersey Police can operate.
Construction at Green Street began in October 2014 and the States of Jersey Police will move in during the first quarter of 2017.
