Developer to fight for controversial St. Brelade apartment plans next month

Monday 16 January 2023


A Planning Inspector will next month decide whether twice-rejected plans to demolish a St. Brelade home and build a block of apartments in its place should go ahead.

The application relates to a property called Fair Acre, which is to the western end of Route Orange, running from Les Quennevais to La Moye.

In October, the Planning Committee judged that the proposed development of 13 apartments would be contrary to policies set out in the Bridging Island Plan.

They said that the proposed development would be "dominant and intrusive, thereby unreasonably affecting the character and amenity of the area and the environment".

The initial planning application, which received nearly 90 objections, was withdrawn by Dandara.

A second application for 15 two-bedroom units submitted in 2020 was then refused by the previous Planning Committee "by virtue of its mass, scale, height, design and large imposing bland side gable ends would be dominant and intrusive".

Pictured: Fair Acre is currently a single property south of Route Orange in St. Brelade.

Solicitor David Hainsworth has now been recruited as Planning Inspector to hear the appeal against the latest refusal.

A hearing will be taking place on Monday 6 February at 14:00 at the Planning Tribunal on the first floor of International House at the Parade.
