Citizens Advice Bureau Jersey

Our advice is available in the following ways:



Planning Applications

Extent: Jersey
Updated 30 August 2019

Words you may need to know


Permitted - something that is allowed


Domestic - not commercial or used for businesses, a place where someone lives


Development - buildings or construction


Registered - an official record, often in the form of a list


Objections - concerns or issues raised by others


Permitted Domestic Development

Permission is not normally required for works set out in the leaflets (pdf documents) available on the States web site.

If a property is registered on the Register of Buildings and Sites of Architectural, Archaeological and Historical Importance in Jersey then some of the allowances listed do not apply.

Objections and Comments
