How many properties that the States of Jersey owns are known to contain asbestos?
How many of the asbestos-containing properties are in use by people, and which ones?

The Public of the Island currently own 715 Freehold sites, 17 Flying Freehold sites and have a “statutory interest” in the eight Parish owned primary schools. This equates to 740 sites “owned” by the Public.
182 buildings across 118 sites are known to contain asbestos.
All buildings containing asbestos are in use by people, such as staff, caretakers, cleaners and so on. 46 of the 182 buildings are accessible by the general public, such as sports facilities, public toilets, Jersey Library and Fort Regent.
Jersey Property Holdings (JPH) have management plans in place for all known asbestos within buildings under their direct control. Some Public buildings are maintained directly by the user departments, such as the General Hospital and Overdale Site, Fire Service Headquarters, Philip Le Feuvre House and HM Prison La Moye. All departments follow the Approved Code of Practice 8 Revised (ACoP) guidelines, which came into force on 1 October 2009, in connection with asbestos management.
