Following the first round of consultation at the end of last year, a draft Development Framework has now been produced for the St Peter Port Regeneration Areas.
Members of the public will be invited once again to find out more about the proposals and submit their views from 5th May.
The three Regeneration Areas comprise the Lower Pollet, South Esplanade and Mignot Plateau, and Mansell Street/Le Bordage. Following consultation, the comments received together with the final draft Development Framework will then be considered by the Development & Planning Authority. If approved by the Authority, the Development Framework will become Supplementary Planning Guidance and anyone submitting planning applications will need to meet the requirements set out in it.
A temporary public display detailing the vision statement and objectives for each area will be available to view in St Peter Port for the duration of the consultation period. The Development & Planning Authority will also be facilitating two public drop-in sessions where representatives from the Planning Service will be present to answer questions and facilitate the submission of your views.
Details of these events can be found in the table below. Please note that details of the venue location after 21 May until the end of the consultation period will be announced in due course once finalised.
For anyone not able to attend the drop-in event, information about this Development Framework and how to submit comments can be found at https://gov.gg/developmentframeworks. The consultation period will be open for 6 weeks until 15 June 2021.
Conversations are also taking place with stakeholders from within the States of Guernsey, property owners and key stakeholder groups.
Following this second consultation, the combined draft Development Framework for the three areas will be finalised.
Deputy Victoria Oliver, President of the Development & Planning Authority, commented:
"We were really encouraged by the amount of interest during the initial consultation period. This draft Development Framework has been prepared while taking into account the submissions from this initial round of consultation.
"It's important that the public now have an opportunity to tell us what they think of this draft, even if they already contributed in the first round. The more people who get involved and have their say, the better the framework will be in ensuring that future plans respond to local needs and contribute to the areas' vitality and vibrancy."
