Jersey is divided into 12 parishes, each is its own administrative district headed by the Constable who also sits in the States of Jersey.
The Parish collects and annual rate payment, set by the Parish Assembly.
The Parish Assembly is a body in each parish that is made up of ratepayer and electors.
It sets the rate level for that parish, elects local officials including members of the roads committee, inspectors, vignteniers and officers.
The assembly also recommends liquor licences, adopts road names discusses matters proposed by the constable.
The parish is also responsible for refuge collection, recycling, the maintenance of some roads, issuing driving licences, giving out parking fines, dog licences, community visitors and Sunday trading hours.
Each of the 12 parishes has access to the coast, this was a historic decision based on the Perquages.
These were routes of refuge that allowed anyone who broke the law to get from their parish church to the beach to leave the island forever.
This allowed them to avoid having to face punishment by the Royal Court.
Every church had to have a safe path to the beach, called Les Perquages and as long as you walked along these paths you could not be arrested.
The parishes are: St Helier, which is also Jersey's capital, St Saviour, St Clement, Grouville, St Martin, Trinity, St John, St Lawrence, St Mary, St Brelade, St Peter and St Ouen.
