How many people in the last 10 years have been granted 'Entitled' status under Regulation 2(1) (e) of the Control of Housing and Work (Residential and Employment Status) (Jersey) Regulations 2013?
Of these, how many have been for people already resident in the Island (as opposed to people planning to move to the Island under the 1(1) (k) or High Value Residency scheme)?
The granting of approvals under Regulation 1(1) (k) of the former Housing (General Provisions) (Jersey) Regulations 1970 was the responsibility of the Minister for Housing, whilst the granting of comparable approvals under Regulation 2(1) (e) of the Control of Housing and Work (Residential and Employment Status) (Jersey) Regulations 2013, which came into effect on 1 July 2013, is the responsibility of the Chief Minister.
The table below details the number of applications approved by the respective Ministers for the years in question:
2016 (up to 30 September)
As a matter of policy, the Minister will not consider applications for Entitled status under Regulation 2(1) (e) of the Regulations from persons who are already resident in the Island, although exceptions may be made.
For example, in the event of divorce or bereavement, the spouse or civil partner who did not hold 2(1) (e) status themselves would be able to apply for that status in their own right, and should they satisfy the financial requirements of the policy (and not yet be Entitled in their own right by virtue of having completed 10 years residence), they would be expected to be granted that status.
No one has been granted 2(1) (e) status as a result of this in the last 10 years.
