    An Assembly of the Principals and Electors of the Parish will be held in the Parish Hall on Tuesday, 15 August at 19:00, to conduct the following business: 

    1. To receive and if deemed advisable approve the Minutes of the Parish Assembly held on 8 June 2023. 
    1. To record one of the recommendations of the Financial Review Working Group, being the creation of reserve funds to avoid fluctuations in the rate.  
    1. To establish a property reserve fund in relation to the monies generated by Maison le Maistre.  

    In 2022, the Parish ascertained through historic minutes and the translation of the deeds that passed through the Royal Court on 5 April 1988, that there appeared to be no restrictions on the use of funds generated through Maison Le Maistre. In accordance with the wishes of the Parish Assembly, these findings were passed to an independent working group, formed to review the financial processes of the Parish on 31 May 2023. Further research was carried out at Jersey Archive by the Working Group, who agreed with the Parish’s initial findings in that the funds did belong to the Parish without restriction. It is the Parish’s intention to create a property reserve fund using the transfer of £600,000 from the Maison Le Maistre accumulated surpluses. 

    A separate Parish Assembly will be called in the coming weeks to present an interim report of all the findings of the Financial Review Working Group, once it has been examined by the Accounts Committee.  

     

    1. To receive a report from the Connétable on the Parish Hall roof project, detailing the background of the project, the damage to the roof areas and the construction works required to remedy the damage.

The Connétable and the Procureurs du Bien Public consider it appropriate to return the matter to the Parish Assembly to reconsider now that the estimates have been received.
