Is there a register of staff accommodation in Jersey and if so who keeps it?

How many units of staff accommodation are there in:

  • the agricultural sector
  • tourism / hospitality sector
  • retail sector
  • other sectors

How many units of staff accommodation are approved as "temporary" and what is the meaning of "temporary"

Which department(s) is (are) responsible for standards of staff accommodation and what legislation / regulations are relevant to the provision of such accommodation?

How many units of staff accommodation have been approved in the past five years?

How many units of staff accommodation have been removed in the past five years?


No such register is held by the States of Jersey and consequently the information you have requested is not held.

You may find some information of interest in the 2011 Jersey census which can be found at the following link:

Information about staff accommodation is not kept as a record in the manner in which your request implies and under the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, the public authority is not obliged to create new data for the purposes of a request.

No single register of staff accommodation is held and to draw together all the elements required to respond to the second part of your request would exceed the 12.5 hour time limit prescribed by the law.

Exemptions and / or refusals applied to this request

Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
