Tuesday 19 March 2024

The planning application to develop 57 key worker flats at Domaines des Moulins (former C.I. Tyres site) has been unanimously granted permission today with conditions following an Open Planning Meeting.

Three representors chose to speak publicly at today's meeting along with representatives of the applicant. For those who raised concerns, the main concerns included the height and density of the development, a perceived lack of parking spaces and the impact on the Conservation Area and Area of Biodiversity Importance.

Deputy Victoria Oliver, President of the Development & Planning Authority, said:

"Although reasonable concerns were raised and considered, at a time when Guernsey has a particular need for more key worker accommodation, on balance I'm pleased that we could approve this development in line with the Island Development Plan in one of our main centres.

"We have a limited amount of land in Guernsey, but this development makes the best use of the site in a way that is appropriate for the area and makes use of the topography. This development also adds a public footpath through the site to the Area of Biodiversity Importance on the land above. Overall, this development will help to address Guernsey's need for housing, particularly key worker housing for the hospital. Housing is one our island's top priorities."
