National park debate for the States
THE States are to debate making some of the Island's most picturesque spots into a national park.
A proposal to create a coastal national park is contained in the draft Island Plan, which was released on Saturday. It will set Jersey's planning policies for the next decade.
The document estimates that 4,000 homes will have to be built over the next ten years to cope with an increased population.
It says that if Islanders want to maintain their standard of living, then Jersey needs to have more workers to combat the effects of an increasingly elderly population.
