Action on vacant properties report

Produced by the Strategic Policy, Performance and Population (Strategic Policy, Planning and Performance)
Authored by Strategic Housing and Regeneration Team and published on 30 Nov 2022
Prepared internally, no external cost


The Action on Vacant Properties report:

  • outlines the objectives for managing vacant homes in Jersey
  • provides data on the estimated number of vacant dwellings on the Island
  • provides 6 key actions the Minister for Housing and Communities is undertaking to address the issue

The action plan also highlights future options to create new powers, invested in the Minister for Housing and Communities, to manage empty dwelling through Empty Dwelling Management Orders, and that compulsory purchase action for vacant homes may be pursued, where all other options have been exhausted and the public interest in acquiring a given property can be proven.

There are 2 tax options outlined in the report which would either introduce an additional charge on empty properties within the existing Rates (Jersey) Law 2005, or introduce a new annual tax levied against vacant homes.
