Definition of Affordable Housing

​The policy document sets out the minimum criteria required for residential accommodation in Jersey to be defined as affordable. 

Jersey’s definition of affordable housing has traditionally been set out in the Island Plan, which distinguished between 'affordable'’ and ‘market’ housing, termed ‘Category A’ and ‘Category B’ housing respectively.  However, when the last Island Plan was published in 2011 important structures currently involved in the allocation or supply of affordable housing were not in place; principally the Affordable Housing Gateway (“The Gateway”), which provides a unified list of individuals eligible to access affordable housing, and Andium Homes Limited (“Andium”), which, along with several Housing Trusts, allocates its vacant homes from the Gateway and delivers new affordable housing.
