Environment Minister Deputy John Young says the current plan is to build new properties in St Helier and other urban areas.

"I believe the value of our coast and countryside is really paramount, a special quality of Jersey. I don't want to see that materially damaged, that's my personal political stand.

"What that means is if we are to concentrate development in the urban area, I think we need policies to make sure they are good places to live."

The consultation closes on 4th October, with feedback put into the final plan for debate in the States.

"This is a chance to influence and shape the future and help keep Jersey a unique and special place to live.

"The Island Plan is at the heart of the planning system; it doesn't just govern where buildings can and can't be built, but determines how we will protect our natural environment and shape the island that our children will grow up in." - Deputy John Young, Environment Minister.
