MISSION:
Our Mission is to provide decent affordable social rented housing for the people of Jersey.

VALUES:
Our Values are encapsulated in the word “Trust”:

  • Transforming – setting new standards for social rented housing provision;
  • Respect for our community and environment;
  • Understanding the needs of our tenants and their families;
  • Strength of purpose and determination;
  • Teamwork – working together to make a difference.

VISION:
Our vision is to be a major force in procuring, developing and acquiring affordable homes of quality. We are, and intent to remain, the largest independent provider of social rented housing in Jersey. We aim to be a model landlord and efficient manager of our properties.

STRATEGY:
We shall regularly update the policies and the means by which we achieve our vision, working with the Minister of Housing to define and share objectives.

Our current objectives:

  • To procure and develop schemes of merit to help meet the housing need in Jersey, in accordance with the policies of the Strategic Housing Unit and the objectives of its Housing Strategy, in such endeavour.
  • Having successfully constructed a portfolio of over 750 homes since our inception, to aspire to repeat this level of development over the next 15 to 20 years. (Developments must meet prudent financial requirements of viability and the financial commitments arising from funding solutions.)
  • To protect the value of our properties and the integrity of our financial reporting through excellent management and maintenance procedures whilst obtaining best value.
  • To manage our tenancies with high regard to the interests and welfare of our tenants and to achieve the highest possible adherence to regulatory standards.
  • To engage with other social rented housing providers and the Strategic Housing Unit in developing policies, standards, transparency and regulatory procedures for the continued growth, reputation and success of the social housing sector.

The Jersey Homes Trust has purchased part of the College Gardens development and will build 40 apartments on the site for the social rental market.

This latest acquisition is one of three sites which mark the beginning of a renewed period of development for the Trust, which is the second largest provider of social rented homes in Jersey. The others are Millbrook Gardens in Rue du Haut, St Lawrence, where four two-bedroom flats and a detached two-bedroom bungalow are currently under construction and due for completion early in 2017. In Grouville, 29 of the 35 houses planned for the former De La Mare’s nursery on Rue a Don will also be owned and managed by the JHT.

Jersey lawyer Philip Le Cornu has been appointed as a trustee to the Jersey Homes Trust (JHT).

Advocate Le Cornu, who is a partner at Ogier, replaces Advocate Steven Meiklejohn who has stepped down after 15 years in the role.
