Regeneration of North of Town – Plans Approved

Friday 24 November 09:27

The north of St Helier will have 165 new homes, a 137 space shopper car park and a new town square following approval by Jersey’s Planning Committee today.

Andium Homes has drawn up plans (P/2017/0730) for five apartment blocks, of between four and six and a half storeys, containing 130 one-bedroom and 35 twobedroom homes.
 
The plans include four retail units, underground parking for shoppers and residents on and offsite (nearby).
 
The existing surface car park will become part accommodation and part town square, with sections of Providence Street and Phillips Street by the Jersey Arts Centre and the Earl of Granville pub closed to through traffic. 
 
Two listed buildings, part of a terrace of seven homes, and Toddy’s Bar will be demolished under these plans.
 
There were six public comments on the proposals submitted to the Department of the Environment, including:

  • support for additional housing and the ‘square’
  • loss of listed buildings
  • a lack of shopper parking spaces
  • a lack of residents parking spaces
  • unclear traffic alterations and on-street parking
  • objection to closure of Phillip Street and Providence Street

A department report on the application acknowledges that the removal of listed buildings – against policy – is balanced with the improvements the scheme will deliver to the overall area. The plans are in line with the Council of Minister’s aim to improve St Helier.
