Plans for new ‘sustainable’ houses


Dandara has revealed plans to build 18 new eco-friendly apartments on Route Orange in St. Brelade in response to the government’s target of being carbon neutral by 2030.

The property developer says that the project’s aim is to reuse previously developed land in a sustainable way, reducing the environmental impacts of the development and enhancing local ecology and biodiversity.

The company believes the scheme will provide a new approach to cutting carbon usage in the island by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from domestic and commercial properties.

In a statement, Dandara added that they hope the development will become an ‘exemplar project’ in ‘ecological and environmental design’ in Jersey.

The Route Orange redevelopment will have on-site renewable energy sources, such as rainwater harvesting and solar panels, and the scheme will use off-site electricity from low carbon nuclear and hydro sources.

Apartments will include home offices to facilitate working from home and reduce commuting, and Dandara hope to encourage the use more sustainable modes of transport with on-site electric vehicle charging points and secure bicycle parking.

The project aims to create around 80 jobs, which Dandara hopes will assist with Jersey’s recovery following the effects of Covid-19. 

If planning permission is received, the project could begin within six weeks.
