In November this year, the St Helier Parish Assembly decided to establish a Shadow Conseil Municipal.
The Shadow Conseil is being established to support the Parish in delivering its aim and objectives more effectively. The Assembly concluded that the proposed evolution of current arrangements would help meet the changing demands and needs of parishioners.
The Shadow Conseil is an advisory committee and whilst it does not have any statutory powers, its establishment seeks to test the concept of a Conseil, support and advise on the development and implementation of Parish strategies and policies, and support discussions with government on development of a Conseil Municipal.
The Shadow Conseil is likely to consider a wide range of issues over coming months, including, but not limited to: climate change and environmental policies and issues, recycling and waste collection, anti-litter strategies, transport and policy issues, town vibrancy, community support and engagement.
The Assembly agreed that in December 2019, it would elect five members, including a youth member, to join the Constable, Procureurs du Bien Public and Roads Committee to form the Shadow Conseil Municipal.
Parish Assembly elections to these five roles will take place at 7pm on Wednesday 18th December at the Town Hall.
