About the consultation
You are invited to give feedback on the recently-published
Interim Retail Strategy, which sets out Government's proposed programme to support and reinvigorate the industry in the short and medium term.
The interim strategy sets out four workstreams:
better connection with Government, with the objective of improving stakeholder connectivity and consideration in government, in order to achieve better sectoral policy development;
improving the quantity and quality of data collected by 2023, to inform government policy development, Parish of St Helier, Jersey Business service provision and industry decision-making;
expanding business support by increasing the service provision from Jersey Business as they help the Island's retailers gain greater financial resilience and productivity;
direct engagement with and, if necessary, a formal submission from the Minister to inform the review of the Island Plan retail policies.
The feedback received will help set the direction of work over the next 36 months in delivering a full retail strategy.
Everyone's feedback is welcome, although we're particularly keen to get the views of retailers. If you are:
- a member of the public, your response will be anonymous;
- responding on behalf of an organisation, you should include its name, which will not be published;
- a retailer, you will be asked for details of your business, but the information will not be published.
Responses will be held by Government for a year and used solely to develop policy and legislation.
