Harbour Master Plan

Ports of Jersey is embarking on a once-in-a-generation programme to transform the harbours in St Helier.

Much of the harbour infrastructure is ageing and no longer meets the needs of today’s passengers or vessels. The Harbour Master Plan aims to modernise the facilities which have developed piecemeal over many centuries.

The regeneration will safeguard the long-term viability of the harbour, serving both passengers and freight, improve customer experience, and realise the area’s potential as a leisure, cultural and tourism destination.

The Plan will cover Elizabeth Harbour, New North Quay, Albert Pier, Victoria Pier, and the Old Harbours to create a vibrant harbour community, which is better connected to town with more inclusive and accessible spaces for use by Islanders and visitors.

Have your say

The Harbour Master Plan aims to connect all the Harbour areas, making them a destination for all, and a fundamental starting point is to understand what St Helier Harbour means to Islanders.

As more detailed plans are developed, we are keen to capture the thoughts of harbour-users on the potential uses of the area. The public consultation, which will run for four weeks, includes two surveys enabling Islanders to comment on the proposals for Elizabeth Harbour and also share their views on what the Harbour means to them and their future aspirations for the area. Feedback can be given online at https://harbourmasterplan.je or at three public events:

Monday, 3 October 12pm-6pm The Cox Suite, Pomme d’Or Hotel
Saturday, 8 October 10am-4pm St Brelade’s Parish Hall
Wednesday, 12 October 10am-4pm The Old Magistrate’s Court, Town Hall, St Helier

Jersey’s harbours have been a lifeline for hundreds of years and have had to adapt and grow in response to the changing needs of transport and Islanders. This Master Plan is the next step in the evolution of Jersey’s maritime heritage.
