The Shadow Conseil

The purpose of the Shadow Conseil

The Shadow Conseil has been established by the Parish Assembly as a Parish Committee for 2020. In adopting Project P6/2019, the Assembly agreed that the Shadow Conseil would support the Constable, Parish and Roads Committee to deliver their aims and objectives to meet the changing demands and needs of parishioners. The Shadow Conseil is an advisory committee that does not have any statutory powers. Its establishment is 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 two Procureurs du Bien Public;
