Port Galots and the sea cadet building (FOI)

Port Galots and the sea cadet building (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 02 February 2015.
Prepared internally, no external costs.



How much remains of the original £600,000 allocated for the new sea cadet building? Have any of the £600,000 been used for the current Le Galots project?


What so far has this current project cost the States of Jersey?


Will States of Jersey be covering any of the current costs of the project?


Where on Hansard can I find the States debate where 'planning gain' for this latest sea cadet project was discussed?


Why has the landlord of the current sea cadet headquarters at Fort Regent failed to maintain the premises to a standard acceptable to the Jersey Sea Cadets Corps?



Of the £600,000 budget, £192,737 was expended before 31 December 2006 by Education Sport and Culture or its predecessor department on previous schemes. The balance of £407,263 was transferred to property holdings.

To date expenditure on the current scheme project development costs is £225,334. Payments made to the private sector company reimburse pre-agreed costs incurred by them from suppliers, at cost. The agreement between the private sector company and these suppliers is a commercial agreement between third parties. In addition to the above payments, the project budget made the following internal direct payments:

  • planning fees (Internal P&E) £32,802
  • surveyors fees (internal TTS) £560

A further sum of £41,200 has been paid to the Jersey Maritime Trust in respect of set up and operating costs from the original budget allocation and a further grant of £14,550 has been met from Property Holdings revenue budget. The balance remaining is £107,367 in a Treasury and Resources Department capital budget.


The current project has incurred expenditure by the Public of:

  • £258,696 in respect of the scheme
  • £55,750 in respect of payments to the Jersey Maritime Trust


See answer (B) above.


The reference to ‘Planning Gain’ was included in the financial implications to amendment 25 to the Island Plan 2011 proposition P48/2011

'Financial and manpower implications

There are no financial or manpower implications arising from this amendment. There will however be a requirement for ‘planning gain’ to fund the eventual construction of a building.'

The planning gain position was also discussed as the means of ‘cross-subsidising’ the community facilities in the Mid Term Financial Plan 2013 to 2015 (P.69/2012): Tenth Amendment, as the specific approach with “a third party to explore the potential of a Joint Venture”.

If approved, the Port Galots scheme would have achieved cross-subsidy (planning gain) in the order of £2 million for the public, in providing community facilities, including the sea cadet HQ, storage, boardwalks and other facilities.


The public as landlord have undertaken necessary repairs only to the current building as the long held intent is to relocate the sea cadets to more appropriate accommodation, in accordance with policy SCO3 of the 2011 Island Plan.
