Proposals for changing Guernsey's housing laws could be drawn up by the end of 2011, says the Policy Council.

It is reviewing the island's licensing laws which restrict occupation of island dwellings by incomers.

It said that the review had taken longer than expected because of the complexity of the subject.

Incomers currently get licences to occupy dwellings for periods of five or 15 years, but new proposals are for one, four, seven or 14 years.

The review follows a report which suggested that changing the licence system might help the island's economy.
