There needs to be a distinctive and desirable balance between the three key themes of community, environment and economy. Each is important to Jersey's future. The Island needs to take stock of where it is now, be clear about what Islanders value most, what they want to change, and what it is possible for the Island to achieve.
The Shaping Our Future consultation was launched and ideas were gathered from Islanders about their future vision for Jersey through the My Jersey survey and other engagement.
Shaping the vision was about inviting debate on specific issues, as well as considering best practice from elsewhere and discussing potential trade-offs, tensions and challenges. There was also discussion about how the community can work together to bring the vision to life.
Phase Two culminated in the Future Jersey discussion document, which was the final piece of public consultation and asked Islanders whether they thought the vision was heading in the right direction.
Future Jersey brought together the facts and figures on key social economic and environmental trends, as well as Islanders’ ambitions gathered through My Jersey, and set a series of proposed long-term ambitions for Jersey.
Having taken into account feedback from Future Jersey, the final framework and content for the long-term vision will be produced and published.
The choices we make now will affect all of us in the future. We want as many people as possible to share their expectations for Jersey as a place to live, work and do business. Future Jersey is the last chance to add your voice.Find out more >
