The Channel Islands Co-operative Society announces sale of Beaumont site to Dandara

Monday 27 February 10:04

THE Channel Islands Co-operative Society has announced plans to sell the former Total Sport warehouse, which closed in 2015, and surrounding buildings at Beaumont to Dandara. The property developer is proposing to submit a planning application for the redevelopment of the site into residential accommodation consisting of three buildings of one and two bedroom apartments over a semi-basement parking area.

The current dilapidated buildings, which the Society have owned since 1950 and are currently unoccupied, have reached the end of their life as viable commercial buildings.

Dandara is inviting Islanders to attend a public exhibition to view its plans, which will significantly regenerate the site together with the surrounding area, before they are submitted to the Planning Department.

The public exhibition will take place on Wednesday 1st March 2017 between 12.00 and 6.00pm at the former Total Sport building. 

The car park area outside of the former Total Sport building will remain for the use of Society shoppers using the Locale store. The parking area behind the Goose on the Green, which is owned by the States of Jersey, will continue to be available for public use and will receive a substantial upgrade, funded by the development, as part of the regeneration plans if approved. The existing buildings will be demolished as part of the development, with the exception of the original German bakery, which was constructed during the Occupation and is of historical interest.  This would be refurbished to form a replacement commercial unit.

The Channel Islands Co-operative Society chief executive officer Colin Macleod said, ‘The former Total Sport site and the surrounding buildings have reached the end of their life as a useful retail space, and we are pleased that Dandara is in a position to invest in the significant regeneration of the Beaumont site. As part of the plans, which we hope Islanders will take the time to view, a number of existing traffic conflicts that currently affect the site will be solved, which will be a huge advantage to the local residents. The Society remains committed to the Locale site and supports the reinvestment in this popular area, which with breathe new life into Beaumont.’

‘Our development proposals provide the opportunity to replace the current dilapidated retail and warehouse buildings with a high quality residential development that will bring significant improvements to the local area.  In formulating our plans, we have held positive consultations with representatives of both the Tenants of the Marsh of St Peter and the States of Jersey Property Holdings department and we are extremely encouraged by their support. The coordinated package of proposed enhancements, that the development will facilitate, to the public car park and to the access, delivery and parking areas for the Co-Op Locale store we believe will greatly benefit both surrounding neighbours and general public,’ said Dandara’s managing director Martin Clancy.

Dandara’s purchase of the site will be subject to approvals from the Planning Department.
