ENVIRONMENT, HOUSING AND INFRASTRUCTURE SCRUTINY PANEL BEGINS REVIEW OF WASTE CHARGES FOR NON-HOUSEHOLDERS

Friday 28 April 15:20

The Environment, Housing and Infrastructure Scrutiny Panel has begun its review of the proposed solid and liquid waste charges for non-householders.

In September 2016 the States Assembly approved the MTFP Addition and, as such, gave an in-principle approval to raise funds from non-household solid and liquid waste charges in order to generate £11.35m by 2019. At the time of the MTFP debate, the details as to the practicalities of the charges, how they would be applied, and their potential impact on non-householders and members of the public were not yet available.

For its review, the Panel will examine the Minister’s proposals to determine whether they are reasonable and fair. The Panel will also assess the charging mechanisms and how they will be applied, will consider the potential impact of the charge on nonhouseholders (including businesses, the tourism industry and the general public) and will ascertain what impact the charges will have on environmental behaviours.

Deputy David Johnson, Chairman of the Panel, said:


“We understand that the States Assembly has already given an in-principle approval of the new ‘user pays’ proposals for non-household solid and liquid waste charges.  However, the Panel needs to ensure that the Minister’s proposals and the details behind the charges are appropriate and fair. We would like to hear from anyone who feels they can contribute to our review.”


The Panel will write to identified stakeholders, including the Minister for Infrastructure, in order to gather material relevant to its enquiry. Public Hearings will also be held in due course. If you would like to write to the Panel with a submission please send it to the Scrutiny Office, Morier House, Halkett Place, St Helier, JE1 1DD or to scrutiny@gov.je.
