Archaeology checks for developers
Developers building in areas of historic interest in Jersey will have to pay archaeologists to oversee their foundation work under new laws.

The planning guidelines were drawn up to protect sites of potential archaeological importance.

The guidelines will be enforced on large building developments but on private projects, the government will foot the archaeologists' bills.

Planning Minister Freddie Cohen said it would preserve Jersey's past.
