Key worker rental costs (FOI)

Key worker rental costs (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 21 March 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


With regard to the latest news about 56 units of key-worker accommodation being made available at Westaway Court, followed by a further 56 units at Le Marais in the coming months, I would like to know what rental will be charged to Key Workers for these Units and whether they will follow the 80% market rates currently charged to all other residents of Social Housing?


No rental rates have been agreed for new units at this time. As such, Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.

Rental rates are agreed between the department and the occupier based on several factors. There is currently a project underway to consider eligibility to units and the rates to be paid across the organisation.  

Article applied

For the purposes of this Law, information is held by a public authority if –

(a)     it is held by the authority, otherwise than on behalf of another person; or

(b)     it is held by another person on behalf of the authority.
