I would like to know who has bought the land known as Mielles du Sud in the parishes of St Peter and St Brelade.
Contracts for the purchase of land are kept in the Public Registry. The Public Registry may be searched by anybody for free during office hours at the Judicial Greffe, Royal Court House, Royal Square, St. Helier, JE1 1JG. Alternatively the staff of the Public Registry can perform searches for a charge. Details of office hours and any charges may be found on the following web page on the www.gov.je site:
Because the information requested is accessible to the applicant by other means it is absolutely exempt under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and we therefore decline to supply the information in response to this request.
Article 23 Information accessible to applicant by other means
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it is reasonably available to the applicant, otherwise than under this Law, whether or not free of charge.
(2) A scheduled public authority that refuses an application for information on this ground must make reasonable efforts to inform the applicant where the applicant may obtain the information.
