Limes housing development given green light

Friday 28 May 2021

Planning permission has been granted to turn the former Limes nursing home into housing blocks.

Outline approval was this week given to the Andium development, which could be completed by the end of 2024 and will be a mix of social rentals and buyable homes.

The development will comprise of 40 one-bedroom, 83 two-bedroom and seven three-bedroom units.

The current buildings, which include the Limes, 13-28 Willow Court and the Willows Day Care Centre, will be demolished. Their replacement will be six floors’ at its highest point – one fewer than originally planned.

1-12 Willow Court and Willow House, to the south-west of the main development, will be refurbished rather than knocked down and is subject to a separate planning application.

The former Health site, which was transferred to Andium in 2017, is currently used as junior doctor and hospital keyworker accommodation. 

The new development includes lower-ground-floor parking for 109 cars, five spaces outside, parking for six motorbikes, a 78-space bicycle store and further room for 72 bikes. 

An Andium spokesman said that while the taxpayer-owned company was pleased to receive outline planning permission, there was still a significant amount of detailed design work to do before the bulldozers moved in.

The project would also have to fit into Andium’s wider schedule of work, he said.

“Our working assumptions at this stage are that we will not commence works at the Limes until next year, if we do so then there would be a reasonable expectation that homes on the site could be completed by the end of 2024 but actual timescales should become clearer by the end of this year,” he added.

All homes, whether rental or purchase will be accessed via Andium's Affordable Housing Gateway.

The new buildings look as if they were inspired by the 1950s Regent House.

Here we go again.

I have JUST passed my 60th birthday I hope I may get a couple of decades more before the Devil is worried about me nicking his job?

I watched Cyril Le Marquand House being built & NOW it seems that is no longer fit for purpose?

I have lasted longer than a Government constructed building!

I watched the Limes being built as I was then spending a lot of time in a splendid old house that once sat opposite this plot! Now the Limes is unfit for purpose!

I am a member of the National Trust etc & have been fortunate enough to see the masses of historical buildings we have on our little rock some going back a THOUSAND years!

Jersey is now in the doldrums financially for more than one reason and it seems previous governments had a propensity for making ( compared to some of our historical buildings) premises with so little foresight as to be comical. I wonder when Cyril Le Marquand & the Limes are rebuilt IF I will live sufficiently long enough to see them pulled down - AGAIN?

Just when I thought I could not be astounded - they get me again!
