I am currently assessing soils on the Jersey plateau in the parishes of St Peter, St Mary, and St Lawrence in the west of the island.  I have read a summary of soils given in the 'Jersey Geology Trail' online at Jersey Geology Trail ( and note the soil series of Jersey are described in more detail in the Rural Planning Services document above. I note the publication is 'Exempt from Public Access' but is it possible to obtain more detailed descriptions of the seven soil series, and possibly copies of the seven soil maps?  This information would be utilised and summarised (and not reproduced verbatim) as baseline information on soils for use in an Environmental Assessment report in connection with a proposed mineral planning application (early stages).
