A Draft Development Framework has been prepared to guide potential development within the boundaries of L'Aumone House/Petit Lande/Sherwood/Bru's Retraite, L'Aumone, Castel. The site is located within the L'Aumone Local Centre, as set out within the IDP. The site area is approximately 0.86 hectares (8.5 vergées).
To the west of the site are local amenities and services including a doctor's surgery, a pharmacy, a convenience store and other employment. The surrounding built environment is predominantly residential with a number of fields identified as Agriculture Priority Areas to the north west and south of the site.
Although not all land within the framework is currently available for development due to existing dwellings and ownerships, the land associated with the three dwellings 'Petit Lande', 'Sherwood' and 'Bru's Retraite' have been included to ensure that any development is planned in a comprehensive way should circumstances change. Inclusion of this land does not in itself imply that it must be developed but is intended to avoid piecemeal development and ensure efficient and effective use of the land in accordance with the IDP.
As with all Draft Development Frameworks, this document has been prepared by Planning Service officers for the purpose of providing broad, comprehensive, impartial and practical planning guidance on how the Island Development Plan 2016 policies will be applied if any planning application is made for the site.
The draft framework invites public consultation, and we would encourage all those with an interest in this site to have their say. The political members of the Development & Planning Authority have not had input into the draft framework but after all of the feedback has been received, they will make a decision on whether it should be approved and become Supplementary Planning Guidance for the site.
The Development & Planning Authority is now inviting comments on the Draft Development Framework by e-mail at email@example.com or in writing to the Authority over the next four weeks until Friday 27th May 2022.
The Draft Development Framework can be accessed via the States of Guernsey website at https://gov.gg/developmentframeworks.
