Expressions of interest sought to realise the potential of La Tonnelle, Les Banques

Thursday 19 September 2019

Property Services are seeking expressions of interest, as advertised in the Guernsey Press, for the opportunity to repurpose this unique building on Guernsey's east coast.

The La Tonnelle building, formerly a tram stop and public conveniences, which is situated on Les Banques and Les Bas Courtils Road, St Sampson, is thought to date back to the late 1930s. In recent years, Occupation-era signage, which has been restored and preserved, was discovered on the building. Painted by German occupying forces these makeshift signs replaced the original road signs which were taken down by Islanders.

Mark Ogier, States Property Services, said:

'We are really keen to see this unusual little building get a new lease of life. This is the very first stage in the process. For the moment all we want is to get a feel for what ideas are out there. After that, we'll get into the detail of what's suitable and what works in line with planning requirements and other considerations. So for now, anyone with an idea for La Tonnelle, be it a business, private individual, charity, or not-for-profit organisation please get in touch.'

Expressions of Interest should be submitted in a sealed envelope marked "Expression of Interest - La Tonnelle", addressed to the General Manager, Property Services, Sir Charles Frossard House, St Peter Port, GY1 1FH to arrive no later than noon on Monday 21 October 2019

Anyone wanting more information can contact Emma Shearer, Commercial Estates Officer on 717376 or emma.shearer@gov.gg.
