Views wanted on town squares, parks and gardens

Tuesday 22 August 11:31

People are being asked for their views on public space in St Helier. The results will be used to shape an open space strategy being developed by the Department of the Environment.

The Department has published an online survey to find out what people think of public space in St Helier, how they use it and what would encourage them to use it more.

The questions cover areas such as:

  • People’s views on their favourite park, square or green space
  • What sort of open space they’d like in town in the future
  • People’s views on children’s play areas and beaches
  • The demand for allotments
  • Access to the rural parts of St Helier

The Minister for the Environment, Deputy Steve Luce said ‘I’d encourage everyone that works, lives or visits town to take a few minutes to give their views on St Helier’s open spaces. To come up with a plan that reflects people’s wishes, we need to understand what people do and don’t like about our parks, gardens, squares and play areas – anywhere in fact that people use for a breather or to kick a ball or walk the dog.’

He continued: ‘The regeneration of St Helier is a Council of Ministers priority, and work is continuing with our partners - the Parish of St Helier and the Department for Infrastructure, as well as others, on plans for a Future St Helier to make a positive difference to people’s experiences of life in town.’

People can win £100 worth of vouchers if they complete the online survey and provide their contact details. The survey results will contribute towards an audit of existing spaces in town, and help shape the final open space strategy, which will be published for consultation in the first half of next year.
