Ports Policy Framework

​Aim of the Ports Policy Framework ​

The Ports Policy Framework​ is intended to help all stakeholders better understand the outputs Government is seeking from the ports sector.

It has safety and sustainability at its core and aims to support the development of Jersey’s economy, to deliver greater prosperity, security, and opportunities for Islanders. 

Policy Framework for the Ports Sector - R.4/2024 on States Assembly website

The 8 strategic priorities

The framework contains 8 key strategic priorities for the sector:

  1. Safety and security
  2. Sustainability
  3. Strategic air connectivity
  4. Strategic maritime connectivity and supply chain resilience
  5. Investment in critical infrastructure
  6. Development of the harbour and airport estates
  7. Economic regulation and governance
  8. Public service obligations

The Ports Policy Framework seeks to address a policy gap which happened when the Ports of Jersey were incorporated in 2015. At the time, Government of Jersey set out a number of objectives for the then newly-incorporated Ports of Jersey, to enable it to continue the provision of essential public services to the Island in a sustainable manner, however no explicit or specific forward-looking sectoral policy was developed.

The Ports Policy Ministerial Group provides Ministerial direction and support to enable the effective and efficient implementation of key strategic priorities in the Ports Sector. ​​
