The politician in charge of Guernsey's population policy review has urged the public to have their say on who can live and work in the island.

More public presentations on the subject are planned to explain the consultation document and answer questions.

Deputy Bernard Flouquet said the views of islanders were essential.

He said: "If you want to understand and get involved, which we want you to, please come along to these meetings."

Deputy Flouquet said: "The early response to this consultation and the number of people who took advantage of the drop-in sessions at Checkers has been very encouraging.

Meeting times, dates and venues

  • 1900 - 2 March - Vale Douzaine Room

"I hope that this trend will continue and as many people as possible will take the opportunity to attend one of these public meetings to learn more about this important issue.

"It is vital that everybody takes advantage of these opportunities to participate in this consultation and let the PPG [Population Policy Group] know how they believe the size and make up of Guernsey's population should be managed.

"In offering six public meetings the PPG wants to give as many people as possible an opportunity to understand the issues and so be able to make an informed response."

Each meeting will consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by a chance for those attending to ask questions.
