"Lunatic Jersey - The Erosion Of Our Libety & Freedom"

Anger over the law that stops you
picking your own flowers
A RETIRED hotelier is outraged over a ‘draconian’ law that could see him prosecuted for picking flowers on his own land.
Tom Jordan (63), who owned a string of hotels in Jersey for decades, fears that a States move to protect land he owns in St Ouen’s Bay by making it a site of special interest (SSI), could leave him open to criminal charges.

The Environment department say that SSIs are designed to protect land from commercial exploitation and not to limit its use by individuals, but Mr Jordan is against any proposal to give extra protection to a strip of land opposite the former Sable d’Or Hotel, which he has owned since 1972.

The 63-year-old said he had been a perfectly good steward of the area and that there was no reason to designate the area as an SSI.
