The Parish of St Saviour have been working with the Government of Jersey to improve safety for pedestrians using Bagatelle Lane under the Safer Routes to Schools Initiative.
This involves the creation of a 'Virtual Footpath' on the west side of the road (with built up pavements in some locations), changing the road to one way for vehicular traffic (to be Northbound only), and a reduction in the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph.
The original timetable was to undertake this work during the 2020 school summer holidays to avoid the peak school drop off/pick up periods. At this time, whilst we are still in lockdown and as the roads remain comparatively quiet, the opportunity has arisen to bring this work forward. Hence the work will now commence on or soon after Monday 8th June 2020. It is anticipated that the work will take approximately five weeks to complete. As part of the temporary traffic management, Growth Housing and Environment plan to implement the one-way system relatively soon once the works have begun.

The relaxed rules have been permanently in place since 29th March, enabling motorists to park for free and with unrestricted time.
From Wednesday 1st July, standard parking measures will return across the Island, and Patriotic Street car park, and Gloucester Street will stop being exclusively for the use of health workers.
The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: “The parking rules were suspended to help people during quarantine, so they did not have to leave their home to move their car. It also enabled Government staff to be redeployed during the pandemic".
“We are giving plenty of notice that parking charges and time restrictions are to return to enable us to remobilise our parking control teams, and to give Islanders plenty of time to consider how they are going to manage their parking, since there will still be a requirement to safely distance from others.

Dog walkers and horse riders using the beaches will have to adhere to the
usual restrictions during the summer now that Stay at Home restrictions have
From 10.30 am on 13 May, dogs must be kept on a lead and horses will not be
allowed on beaches between 10.30am and 6pm.
Islanders have been able to continue to walk their dogs off the lead and
ride horses on the beaches at any time of the day. The extension of the winter
hours was intended to give dog walkers greater flexibility to comply with
physical distancing rules while beaches were quiet.
However, in light of the changes to Stay at Home restrictions, ministers
believe that a balance must be struck between achieving this flexibility and
ensuring those currently accessing Jersey’s beaches for social activities are
not unduly disturbed.
The Assistant Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and
Culture, Senator Steve Pallett, was planning to lodge legislation to extend the
period that dogs without a lead and horses could be on beaches until Stay at
Home restrictions were lifted.
The draft legislation, due to be debated by the States Assembly on 12 May,
would have amended the Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959, which
states that dogs must remain on leads between 10.30am and 6pm during the period
of 1 May and 30 September.
However, following the relaxing of Stay at Home restrictions last week,
Senator Pallett, in agreement with the Council of Ministers, has decided against
extending the winter hours.
Senator Pallett said: “When we first considered an amendment to the
Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959 some two weeks ago, we were under
stricter Stay at Home measures. While these stricter rules were in place and
people could only walk or exercise on the beach, it seemed sensible to extend
the winter rules on allowing dogs to be walked off the lead during this lockdown
period as there was little opportunity for dogs to be a nuisance to beach goers.
It also allowed dog owners better opportunities to adhere to the physical
distancing rules if they had the whole day to walk their dog rather than just
the period before 10.30am and after 6pm.
“However, since the relaxation of the Stay at Home restrictions, families
and household groups are accessing the beach more readily and are increasingly
likely to do so when the weather is good. This will undoubtedly mean the
likelihood that, should dog walkers have access to the beach to walk their dogs
off the lead between 10.30am and 6pm, there is an increased risk that loose dogs
will cause a nuisance to beach goers. The summer restrictions are specifically
put in place to prevent this happening while people enjoy the beach, often with
The Attorney General, Mark Temple QC, had previously said he wouldn’t
pursue offences under the law from 1 May until the States considered the
proposal on the 12 May. With the extension of winter hours for dog walking not
going ahead, Islanders could risk prosecution from next Wednesday if they do not
abide by the law.
However, Senator Pallett added that, should the situation change and
stricter Stay at Home measures implemented, the amendment to the law could be

The Refuse and Roads Departments would like to thank all of the Parishioners for their support and generosity they have shown the teams during these difficult times.
|07/05/2020||The Parish Connétables have announced plans for exhibitions across the island later in the year.|
Parishioners are being invited to submit photographs of their home and street in lockdown and also decorated for Liberation 75 – 2020.
Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, explained – QUOTE
Parish plans, and those of the Island, to mark Liberation 75 – 2020 may have been cancelled but many of my parishioners are still entering into the spirit of celebration and have decorated their homes with flags and bunting.
I didn't want to see this wasted and have suggested to my fellow Connétables that each Parish could put on an exhibition later in the year when life gets back to normal.
We're aware there are a number of other organisations also collecting photographs of this period in our island's life and this is not intended to detract from those initiatives. But it will be wonderful for each Parish to have its own record of these weeks in lockdown and also the way Liberation 75 is celebrated.
I'm delighted that my fellow Connétables are supportive of this proposal as an additional way to mark Liberation 75.
Parishioners are invited to send in photographs of Liberation 75, showing homes decorated for the occasion and street parties (at a social distance) and of 'lockdown'.
The photographs will be displayed at the Parish Hall for all to view following the lifting of COVID-19 movement restrictions.
The Connétables very much hope that all who now regard Jersey as their home will seek to preserve the special status of Liberation Day and will celebrate the occasion.

With more people likely to be out for a longer period each day the Connetables are asking dog owners to consider all other beach users.
Owners should ensure they keep their dog under control at all times and pick up their dog's mess.
Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, said – QUOTE
The Connétables wish to remind dog owners of the law and that they must pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it in a bin.
Connetables are receiving compaints about the condition of beaches and also parks, sand dunes and footpaths. The requirement to clean up after your dog applies to all public areas including roads and pavements.
It is an offence to dispose of plastic bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptacle and there are lots of bins around the island. If you can't find a bin then take the litter home with you – don't discard the bag in the hedge or trees.
A fine of up to £1,000 can be imposed on those who do not clean up after their dog.

Connétable of St Saviour
"We would like to draw to the attention of our parishioners, at any point Garden Green Waste will not be accepted in the Refuse Collection".
"I am disappointed that the levels of contamination in our refuse service have increase this week but not, surprised, the weather is great, Government of Jersey are advising to stay at home rightly, however, I would like to URGE parishioners that if our service is to continue as normal, PLEASE DO NOT mix your garden waste with your normal refuse".

|30/03/2020||Advice for islanders during lockdown period|
From 8am on Monday 30 March, the Government will instruct all Islanders who are not doing essential work to ‘stay at home’.
This means, everyone in Jersey is ordered to stay at home at all times from 8am on Monday 30 March, except for a limited number of reasons.
People should only leave their homes for a total of 2 hours each day, and in the following limited circumstances:
- when you need to shop for food, medicine, and other basic necessities, which should be as infrequently as possible
- for daily exercise. This can include walking, cycling, running, exercising or caring for animals, provided you maintain social distancing from everyone outside your own household
- for any medical needs, including providing care
When outside your home or garden, you must maintain a safe social distance of two metres from anyone outside your own household.
Take advantage of Jersey’s open spaces (beaches, coast and countryside) where you are able to do so and where you can remain spread out from other people (avoiding narrow paths).
You should also avoid congregating in popular areas.
Everyone must follow this guidance, to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. This will be monitored and policed. If people disregard this order to Stay at Home, more restrictive controls are very likely to be introduced.
The Government has issued advice on how to prepare and manage daily life while staying at home as strict social distancing measures are amplified.
The new advice includes methods that all Islanders can take to practically prepare themselves and their families for staying at home, including:
- exchanging personal contact details with neighbours, extended family members and friends
- creating an essential contact list including, neighbours, schools, pharmacy and the helpline +44 (0) 1534 445566
- ensuring access is available to everything needed for the duration of the self-isolation period, including food and medical supplies
- talking with employers, family, friends and charities regarding getting help to access things needed
- setting up online shopping accounts
- considering activities you can do within the home, such as fitness workouts and a choice of leisure activities
- planning for self-isolation measures for individual household members within the home
Staying at home for individuals and households
Shielding the extremely vulnerable from coronavirus
The guidance also sets out how to maintain safe social distance within the home if living with a vulnerable person, with children, pets and contains information for mothers breastfeeding. There is general advice on cleaning, hygiene, waste disposal, laundry and how to get better at home.
Islanders can find information regarding medical advice if illness becomes worse, by contacting your GP or the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566. In the case of an emergency, dial 999 and let the operator know about any coronavirus symptoms.
Work should be undertaken from home whenever possible.
People engaged in work that is designated as being essential to the safe running of the Island during this time are permitted to travel to and from their place of work when necessary. Social distancing and good hygiene must be practised at all times.
Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions
Essential workers are people engaged in work that is essential to the continued safe running of the Island during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions
Critical workers are a smaller sub-set of essential workers in especially critical roles.
If they are parents and cannot make arrangements for their children to be looked after at home, are being offered school or nursery places by government as a last resort.
Critical workers and childcare
A further, very small subset of essential workers may need to travel into Jersey:
- Health and care workers arriving into Jersey since Sunday 22 March are required to self-isolate (like most travellers), and a risk assessment process is then undertaken by the Health and Community Services department to determine whether it is safe for them to leave isolation to go to work.
- Other essential workers arriving into Jersey since Friday 20 March are asked to self-assess whether it is really necessary for them to work on-site or whether they can isolate for 14 days like most travellers (for example, working
Weddings and funerals
Following a review by the Competent Authority Minister on Friday, it was decided that weddings booked from 30 March to 30 June will not be permitted to go ahead, apart from in special circumstances such as where one or both individuals are subject to end of life care, including COVID-19.
Funerals are permitted to take place, although these may only be attended by the immediate family, and social distancing must be observed between people from different households.
|26/03/2020||Update from Sadie Le Sueur-Rennard, Connetable of St Saviour |
Over the course of this week, I was made aware by our recycling Partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues, picked up on our recycling collections. This poses a significant a health risk to St Saviours and St Heliers employees and, I therefore regret to inform our parishioners that I have made the decision with St Helier to take effect from the Friday 27 March 2020 to suspend our recycling service until further notice.
I want to assure our Parishioners that the refuse services (black Bags) will still be continuing as normal for now.
I would like to assure my parishioners that I will be working hard to recommence our service as soon as possible safe to do so, and ask for understanding in this difficult time our island is experiencing.
Stay safe, protect your loved ones and be positive.

We are experiencing a significant increase in the volume of household waste as more parishioners work from home and receive more packages delivered directly to home addresses. We ask that parishioners continue to place their waste in appropriate bins for collection on normal days.
We have been informed by our recycling partner "Parish of St Helier" that due to the rising number of parishioners working from home and the high number of packages being delivered, there has been a considerable increase of waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths which are raising contamination the recyclable items.

During the self-isolation period of 14 days, anyone who develops flu-like symptoms should call the helpline.
People are advised not to travel to the Island unless they have the ability to self-isolate for a full 14 days in Jersey.
Arriving passengers who are non-symptomatic can, where absolutely necessary, use public transport for the short journey (maximum 1 hour) to travel directly from arrival to their home, whilst observing social distancing advice. They must then follow the self-isolation rules. They can also use their own transport, or travel with an individual collecting them, again subject to observing social distancing advice and cleaning the vehicle after use. Passengers should travel directly to their homes and not visit any shops during the journey.
Transport will be provided for any symptomatic travellers.
The measure does not apply to essential workers coming to Jersey, as they should not affect our overall containment strategy and their presence in Jersey is very important to help us to keep the Island running. If essential workers develop symptoms of coronavirus within 14 days of travel they must self-isolate and self-refer. Any essential worker who has been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 individual abroad must self-isolate for 14 days. Essential workers are also advised to actively limit the frequency of travel into and out of the Island.
Medical advice has been updated and is constantly under review. This is based on the latest data.
Islanders are advised to only travel off-Island if it is truly essential, such as for medical care, to provide care for vulnerable dependents and for essential business that can’t be undertaken remotely by electronic or other means.
Anyone returning from anywhere abroad with symptoms of coronavirus should immediately self-isolate and self-refer by calling the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566.
The line is open every day from 8am to 8pm.

Social distancing advice for over 65s
Social distancing means limiting unnecessary contact with people outside of your household unless absolutely essential
We are currently recommending this to over 65s who are not essential for the running of the Island's services should they wish to continue carrying out their roles.
For those 65 year olds who do chose to adhere to social distancing, when not in the home, they should keep to a distance of 1 metre (3 feet) from others. Therefore, may need to avoid large public gatherings where this is not possible.
If you work, or are not at home, you should avoid using public transport during peak hours unless essential.
If Parishoners are concerned they may
have symptoms of Coronavirus, they should contact the local helpline on 01534 445566 – the line is open from 08:30 am to 11 pm daily and if it is busy, you can leave a message and your call will be returned.
