The Government is planning to sell off a property it owns near the Western Fire Station for £450,000 as part of a drive to make savings.
Known as ‘The Fire House’, the property is located on La Route des Quennevais.
The sale of the property was approved as part of the Government Plan 2021-2024 as part of efficiencies and 'rebalancing' proposals.
The document states the domestic dwelling is no longer required by the Fire Service and that it’s been valued at £450,000.

In a report presented to the Infrastructure Minister, Deputy Kevin Lewis, Jersey Property Holdings (JPH) said they would select a residential sales agency and obtain a current valuation for at which to market the house.
If “satisfactory” bids are received, JPH will then inform the Minister of their details and seek a further decision from the States Assembly to sell the house.
The report states that no decision has been made as to whether the house should be marketed at an asking price with bids invited at that level, or whether to seek sealed bids to be opened on a given date.
The Minister authorised JPH to progress with the sale and informed the States Assembly of his proposition.
He has also authorised the Attorney General and the Greffier of the States to pass any contract which is required to be passed on behalf of the Public; and the Director of Property Holdings to conclude any contract which is required to be concluded on behalf of the Public.
The States will be notified of the transaction and if no objections is received within 15 days, it will be concluded.
