A Draft Development Framework has been prepared by the Planning Service for a potential residential development at Bouverie Lane, Cobo in the parish of Castel, to provide planning guidance on how this site might be developed.
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 Bouverie Lane site covers an area of approximately 0.3 hectares (2 vergees) and is located on Bouverie Lane, to the north-east of the Route de Cobo, within the Cobo Local Centre. The Draft Development Framework identifies a number of constraints and opportunities for the site, and particularly highlights potential to improve the site access and the adjacent public footpath, known as Bouverie Lane.
It is anticipated that the site would be able to accommodate a density range of 20 - 30 dwellings per hectare, which is approximately 5 - 7 dwellings on this site. The actual number may however be higher or lower subject to the detailed design of the proposal.
The Development & Planning Authority is now inviting comments on the Draft Development Framework document by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the Authority over the next six weeks until the 26th June 2019. 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://www.gov.gg/developmentframeworks 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 Wednesday 26th June, 2019.
