  4. Constable says campers should apply to launch sites

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The Constable of St Brelade says there needs to be some accommodation for campers and campervans in the island but it is the responsibility of the campers to set it up.

    A petition asking for it to be legal for people to camp in some areas of Jersey has now been signed by more than 1,000 people.

    It was started after complaints about people camping at St Ouen's Bay, and the possibility of restrictions.

    Quote Message: At the moment they can only go to recognised camp sites which is perfectly legal but they have reduced over the years. There aren't that many places available for campers to go to but if there is demand it is up to individuals to apply for camp site status so they can apply to campervans." from Constable Mike Jackson St Brelade
