    Islanders in Sark are to decide whether laws restricting the use of e-bikes in the island should be abolished.

    Each household will receive two forms asking residents for their opinion on deregulation in the next four weeks.

  10. Jersey 'must take notice' of election criticism

    Chris Quevatre

    BBC News Online

    A former politician who brought plans to reform the election system in Jersey says the island's government must take notice of a damning report by election observers.

    A group from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association monitored the elections in May.

    They've criticised the way electoral districts are set and questioned the future of constables in the States.

    Andrew Lewis, who suggested similar changes to some of the recommendations made in the observers report, says it's time to deal with the question of whether the constables should remain in the States.

    Quote Message: The constables unfortunately are the ones that will eventually end up in the firing line because they are the ones that are most often uncontested. It's not their fault nobody puts themselves forward. It's the system's fault for providing the current way that you have to elect a constable, and they sit in the States, therefore they have the same vote as everybody else. from Andrew Lewis Former deputy

    BBC News Online

    A shortage of hotel rooms has delayed the Jersey Reds' first home game of the Championship season.

    Jersey Reds

    The Reds were due to face London Irish at St Peter on 15 September, but the club said there's a lack of rooms because of other major events that weekend.

    One of the events taking place that weekend is the Jersey International Air Display.

    The first Championship home game will now be against Yorkshire Carnegie on 28 September, with the London Irish fixture rescheduled for November.

    The Championships fixtures have been announced and Jersey begin with away trips to newcomers Coventry and Bedford.

    Jersey's last competitive game at Coventry was when they sealed promotion to the Championship in 2012.

  15. 'Toxic algae' found at reservoir

    Chris Quevatre

    BBC News Online

    An algae which is "toxic to humans and animals" has been found in Guernsey's main reservoir.

    Guernsey Water is looking into the blue-green "algal bloom" in St Saviour's, after routine monitoring.

    Reservoir algae

    The government water provider said that blue-green algae exist in waters "throughout the world", and is removed during the treatment process, so there shouldn't be any impact on water supplies.

    However as a precautionary measure, notices have been posted next to the reservoir warning that contact with the "algal scum" should be avoided.

    Fishing sign

    Guernsey Water said those with fishing interests have been notified, along with the States Vet and Environmental Health.

    "From go-live date, members will be able to book fitness classes and five-a-side courts; as well as squash, tennis and badminton courts all online," said Mrs Herridge.

  19. Guernsey welcomes new post-Brexit fishing plan

    John Fernandez

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Guernsey's government is welcoming a new plan for the UK's fisheries post-Brexit.

    Yesterday, the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs released a white paper on the plans which included the intention to develop a new fisheries management agreement with the Bailiwick.

    Commercial fisherman

    The plans released by DEFRA didn't include a lot of detail on what a new arrangement would mean.

    However, Guernsey's government has welcomed the consultation, and said a dialogue has already been struck between officials in the UK and the Bailiwick.

    It added it's "pleasing" the document "clearly recognises the autonomy of fisheries management in the Crown Dependencies".

    The plan has a 10-week consultation period.

    The States of Guernseys say once the future UK-EU relationship is clear, the government will be able to tell the local fishing industry what it will mean for them.
