DEVELOPERS could be forced to provide a certain amount of affordable housing through new planning covenants, Housing minister Dave Jones has revealed.

Deputy Jones, pictured, said that inter-departmental talks were being held by the States to introduce the new ruling in a bid to meet Guernsey's growing housing needs.

The new covenants are currently under consideration for the States' Housing Target Areas, but Deputy Jones said he believed they could be used at other major developments in the future to ensure housing needs were being met.

'I think planning covenants are the way forward,' said Deputy Jones.

'I hope to get them on Housing Target Areas before they are developed and that will help the situation considerably. '
