The Crown owns land and buildings in the Island that it has acquired either by feudal right, escheat or purchase. Its property portfolio currently comprises:
- four residential properties
- over 450 vergees of agricultural land (approximately 809,371 m² or 199.99 acres)
- Crown fiefs, which are currently used for animal grazing or recreation
- the foreshore, the sea bed and the offshore reefs
The Crown’s property portfolio generates substantial revenue for the Island each year while its ownership by the Crown ensures that it cannot be exploited for anything other than the common good.
