NOTE: Some main roads in Parishes and in St Helier are the responsibility of the Department of Infrastructure

Extinguishment of private lane and conversion to public road

A Parish Assembly can do this by the minutes of a meeting. No legal change is needed, the minute makes the action legal.

If a ‘chemin de voisine’ (see below) has been used by the public since time immemorial it could have the effect of turning it into a public road. The same cannot happen to a ‘chemin prive’ (see below).

Types of road

  • Grande Route - A main road under the administration of the Minister for Department of Infrastructure
  • Chemin Vicinal - A by-road under the administration of the relevant parish.
  • Chemin de Voisine - A private road belonging to two or more landowners.
  • Chemin Prive - A private road belonging to the owner or owners of just one property.
