  • Why does Guernsey need to manage its population?

    • Guernsey is an island of 25 square miles.  Because of its small size there is a limit to the number of people the Island's resources can support.
    • And life is changing.  Generally, people are living longer, and tend to have smaller families.  If left unmanaged, this can lead to a situation where a smaller number of people are working and they are contributing to support a growing number of people in retirement.  It also means there are fewer people available to fill jobs and provide essential services.
    • In a small community, changes like these can have a big impact.  But small communities can also adapt more quickly to cope with change, and Guernsey has a long and proud history of doing just that.
    • Guernsey is a special Island, with a rich heritage and unique identity.  We also need to make sure that changes in the make-up of the Island's population don't change the things that make Guernsey a very special place to live and work.
