Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 10 November 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Has a Children’s rights impact assessment been carried out for any of the work being scoped in Trinity Village? If so, can you please supply me with a copy.
Is it standard practice that government transport projects will have children’s rights impact assessments carried out? Or will this be standard practice in the future?
A Children’s Rights Impact Assessment has not been carried out in relation to the Trinity Village Improvement Scheme.
It should be noted that there is currently no requirement, under legislation or within Government of Jersey policies, for a Children’s Rights Impact Assessment be carried out in relation to this type of scheme.
The Government of Jersey does not hold any information relating to the future requirements regarding the completion of Children’s Rights Impact Assessments for transport schemes, therefore, Article 10 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.
The following article is available on the government website regarding proposed changes in relation to the requirement for Children’s Rights Impact Assessments in the future. Please see the link below:
Law to require children’s rights to be considered (gov.je)
Article 10 - Obligation of scheduled public authority to confirm or deny holding Information
(1) Subject to paragraph (2), if –
(a) a person makes a request for information to a scheduled public authority; and
(b) the authority does not hold the information, it must inform the applicant accordingly.
(2) If a person makes a request for information to a scheduled public authority and –
(a) the information is absolutely exempt information or qualified exempt information; or
(b) if the authority does not hold the information, the information would be absolutely exempt
information or qualified exempt information if it had held it, the authority may refuse to inform the applicant whether or not it holds the information if it is satisfied that, in all the circumstances of the case, it is in the public interest to do so.
(3) If a scheduled public authority so refuses –
(a) it shall be taken for the purpose of this Law to have refused to supply the information requested on the ground that it is absolutely exempt information; and
(b) it need not inform the applicant of the specific ground upon which it is refusing the request or, if the authority does not hold the information, the specific ground upon which it would have refused the request had it held the information.
