Wednesday 25 May 2022

Deputy Rob Prow, Chair of the Population and Immigration Policy Review Steering Group, has issued the following statement in response to today's media coverage on the review:

'We want to reassure the community that no policy will be proposed that has the potential to negatively impact either the Open Market or Local Market, or reduce the stock of properties available in either market.

'As part of the Population and Immigration Policy Review, we have explored a policy which would support older islanders above pensionable age who have lived in the Open Market for more than 14 years potentially downsize by moving into the Local Market in return for them giving up the Open Market status of their property, with that status then being switched to another property to ensure no loss of stock in either Open or Local markets.

'The front page of the Press today is lacking context and as such does not paint an accurate picture.'
