Island Plan, household waste and new bus services.
by Mike Jackson, Connetable

Our summer edition find our parish political representatives embroiled in a long States debate on the proposed new Island Plan.

The existing 2002 plan which was prepared a decade ago needs to be updated in light of the latest strategic policies which have been formulated as a result of public consultation and feedback. There are clear policies regarding green field sites. the importance of climate change and the approach to transport. The policy on immigration brings new consideration and the housing sites identified in 2002 have been developed or have become subject to different considerations. For my part in the Plan, I shall be pleased if its adoption by the Sates succeeds in protecting our Parish against the voracious developments such as we have experienced in the past.

I shall be putting forward proposals at the next Parish Assembly to extend the present household refuse and glass collection to include recyclables such as newspapers, cans and plastic bottles. Our contractor is working with the Parish to achieve the most practical solution with regard to bin requirements. We are also aware that storage arrangements vary significantly between properties and in some cases alterations may be required. If the proposals are approved it is envisaged that the new collections will be introduced later this year.

Bus services linking the Parish with St. Helier improve and this is clearly indicated by the additional services on the 'Corbiere Loop'. I do hope that residents in the La Moye area will use them as it is only by using the service that it can be justifiably retained financially. The two double decker buses are now with us permanent and will enable parishioners on the 15 Route to benefit from the added comfort - and of course, views.

I take this opportunity to wish all parishioners a great summer and urge you to take advantage of the Parishes many natural facilities. There is something for everyone in St. Brelade.
