A Draft Development Framework has been prepared by the Planning Service for a potential residential development at Briarwood, in the parish of St Martin's.
The site covers an area of approximately 1 hectare (6.1 vergees) and is occupied by the Health Services building at Briarwood, a dwelling known as Les Blanches Pierres, the attached hairdressers known as Envy, the St Martin's public car park and the adjacent field. The developable area of the site however excludes the Health Services building, the dwelling at Les Blanches Pierres and the hairdressers. The Draft Development Framework has been prepared to provide planning guidance on how the site might be developed for residential purposes, but also highlights potential for improvements to the public car park, pedestrian network and access points along La Grande Rue.
The purpose of a Development Framework is to provide broad, comprehensive and practical guidance on how policies in the Island Development Plan will be applied to a site and considers appraisal of the wider area and site.
The Development & Planning Authority is now inviting comments on the Draft Development Framework document by e-mail at email@example.com or in writing to the Authority over the next six weeks until the 1st June 2018. Following consultation, the comments received together with the document will then be considered by the Development & Planning Authority. If approved by the Authority, the Development Framework will become Supplementary Planning Guidance and will be taken into account when considering development proposals for this site.
The Draft Development Framework can be accessed via the States of Guernsey website at https://gov.gg/developmentframeworks on the 'Development Frameworks' page or copies of the Draft Development Framework are available to view at the Planning Service Reception at Sir Charles Frossard House, La Charroterie, St Peter Port.
All responses and comments should be received by 5pm on 1st June 2018.
