What we do

Infrastructure, Housing and Environment (IHE) provides the conditions, facilities and decisions needed for Islanders, the environment and business to flourish and prosper.

The department’s focus is to provide the critical national infrastructure and decision making needed to enable Islanders, businesses and visitors to live, work and enjoy the Island. The department is a key delivery agent in protecting and enhancing Jersey’s natural and built environment, and in protecting the habitats and species which make the Island special.

Our delivery team services are split across four directorates: Operations and Transport, Natural Environment, Regulation, and Property. 

Operations and Transport
