Island residents asked for views on St Helier
Thursday 14 May 08:50
The Minister for Planning and Environment, Deputy Steve Luce, is inviting Islanders to have their say on the regeneration of St Helier at workshops in May.
The workshops are taking place on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May at the Town Hall. Stakeholder groups and organisations that represent people that live, work or have an interest in the town are invited to attend a full day workshop (Saturday 30 May – 9am to 4pm). The second day ‘drop-in’ workshop (Sunday 31 May – 9.30am to midday) is open to all.
The regeneration of St Helier is one of the Council of Ministers’ priorities and the workshops will explore what the vision for St Helier might mean to those that live, work or have an interest in town. The Minister wants to listen to people’s views about the future of St Helier and find out what matters and why. The workshop event will focus on three key themes: travel and transport, urban living and environment, and identity and community.
Deputy Luce said: “The regeneration of St Helier is a priority for the Council of Ministers and it is important that we listen to those with a stake in its future – residents, businesses and others who use and visit town – to understand what is important to them in developing our plans for the future of our capital. These initial workshops will help us better understand what is valued and the areas we need to focus on.”
People representing a stakeholder group or organisation who are interested in attending the workshop on Saturday 30 May should contact Kevin Pilley, Policy, Projects and Historic Environment Director on tel: (01534) 448441 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone wishing to attend on Sunday 31 May is welcome to come along to the Town Hall between 9.30am and midday. The morning will include feedback from the Saturday workshops and attendees will have the opportunity to share their views and leave feedback.
