About the St Helier 3D model
Our 3D model has been created using aerial photography and ground level photo surveys. It provides an easy access to a visual representation of St Helier. You can use it to assess the impact of heights, orientation and design on a site or surrounding area.
The model allows us, as planning officers, to analyse proposed developments in greater detail than ever before. By animating a proposed development in Jersey in 3D, we can view it from an range of aspects, such as:
- ground level
- mid height
- bird’s eye view
Jersey 3D also makes it easier for you to understand the future of your local area and major Island developments, and to have your say.
The initial project has been contained to the town area of St Helier and to the Airport but it will be extended over time to cover all parts of the Island.
The potential for Jersey 3D is far greater than just development assessment. It has potential uses outside of planning for industry, government and education.
Access to the model
The existing and proposed 3D development models can currently be viewed at our South Hill Offices. Further developments are underway to enable online access in the near future.
If you are an architect or developer with a current mapping license you are now able to incorporate your proposed schemes directly into the model so that they can be properly assessed by the us and the public. If you would like to purchase this mapping data contact our mapping business partners Digimap.
A promotional video of the 3D model has been put together and is available for you to view on the States of Jersey YouTube channel. There is a link to it at the top of this page.
Technical guidance on how to use the 3D model for has also been developed to assist agents and architects in submitting 3D models.
