The needs of States tenants could be helped by a new management organisation owned by the public, according to Jersey's housing minister .
Deputy Andrew Green said such a body could reduce waiting lists and find finance for new housing.
He said one of his first jobs as the new housing minister was to oversee the change.
He said: "The only way I can change it is to put us into a legal status as arm's length management organisation."
The minister said: "It must be wholly owned by the government, we cannot negate our responsibility.
"It must be able to behave commercially and take advantage of the assets we've got to build more."
