Jersey 3D model

​​About the Jersey 3D model

Our ​3D model has been created using aerial photography and ground level photo surveys. It provides easy access to a visual representation of St Helier and has now been extended to other parts of the Island. You can use it to assess the impact of heights, orientation and design on a site or surrounding area.

The model allows States of Jersey 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
  • time of day / year (shadowing analysis)

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 through viewing planning applications in 3D on the online planning register.

The potential for Jersey 3D is far greater than just development assessment. It has potential uses outside of planning for industry, government and education.

3D model coverage

The initial 3D model of St Helier has now been extended to cover other parts of the Island and over time all buildings will eventually be captured in 3D. You can see which buildings are currently available in 3D by viewing the key map.

Planning requirements

A 3D model will be required for planning applications involving any scheme for:

  • a new building over 200 square metres
  • any scheme that proposes the construction of more than one building
  • any revised plans application to an approval that provided a 3D model as part of the original submission

We recommended you contact the department before submitting an application to find out if a 3D model is required. Even if a model isn’t required, you can still provide one to support your application. It’s hoped that through the natural development process, the availability of models will eventually exist covering the entire Island.

3D models for planning applications

Access to the model

If you are an architect or developer with a current mapping license you are able to have full access to all of the 3D model data.  If you are not a mapping license holder and would like to access the 3D model data please contact our mapping business partner Digimap.

Digimap website

The 3D model can be viewed at our South Hill Offices. Planning applications that have included a 3D model can also be accessed online through the planning applications register.
