Apartments and shelter proposed for one of Jersey's "busiest bus stops"

Monday 29 May 2023

A new apartment block and bus shelter will be constructed in the area of one of the island's "busiest bus stops", if Planning agrees.

If approved, the existing two-bedroom house on Route de la Haule would be demolished and be replaced by a one-bedroom flat and two sets of two-bedroom flats.

Applicant Brigham Young plans to build a bus shelter to cover the bus stop in front of the site.

The application is supported by St. Peter Constable Richard Vibert, who said in a statement submitted to Planning that such a shelter had been requested by parishioners for more than 20 years.

"We now have the opportunity, as part of the proposed development, for the shelter to be constructed – something that has not only my support but that of many parishioners," he said.

Mr Young bought the two-bedroom house two years ago with the aim of redeveloping the site and providing the Parish with a bus shelter.

In a statement submitted as part of the planning application, agent Godel Architects said: "This is one of the busiest bus stops for passengers heading into St. Helier.

"The applicant is fully in support of these aims, and purchased the property with the intention of facilitating the provision of a new bus shelter, and the land it sits upon, while redeveloping the site to provide three residential units."

The proposed bus shelter would consist of a curved zinc roof with a timber bench – a design Godel Architects said would be reminiscent of historic railway carriages, serving as a reminder of the railway line that once ran along St.Aubin's Bay promenade.
