Transition: Housing Control to Population Management

Contact Us - Population Management

Share this page


The Population Management Law introduces new rules for people living in States of Guernsey housing in Guernsey.  These rules won't be applied to some people who were living in Guernsey when the Population Management Law came into force on 3 April 2017.  For these people, sometimes called 'transitional people', different rules and policies apply. 

Rules are set out in the Population Management Law and are sometimes called 'grandfather rights'.  Policies are not set out in the Population Management Law. 

The Administrator of Population Management has policies about transitional people.  A person can usually expect that policy will be applied to them if their situation exactly fits the description in the policy - but the Administrator can always choose not to apply a policy.  It is best for a person to make an application for a Permit under these policies and not to rely on the fact that their situation seems to fit a policy.

The rules and policies set out here apply specifically to transitional people.  If a person came to Guernsey on or after 3 April 2017 these rules and policies won't apply to them.  If a person was living in Guernsey before 3 April 2017, they can contact us to find out if they are being treated as a 'transitional person' if they are unsure about their status.
