Request for taller build in coastal flats development

Monday 15 August 2022

Developers are asking for permission to make a luxury coastal development in St. Clement slightly taller than first agreed.

After an earlier iteration of the designs was rejected for being “unduly dominant and harmful to the streetscape and character of the area”, Big Sky Limited secured permission to demolish Pinewood and Seacroft – two “large family dwellings” with gardens along La Grande Route de la Cote – and build 14 new two-bedroom flats in their place in January.

In response to feedback, one of the blocks was made slightly smaller than the other in the approved plans, which also include landscaping and 28 on-site parking spaces, as well as getting rid of the current private road connecting the existing properties to the main road.

The current road will be replaced with a wider access road onto La Grande Route de la Cote, as well as five new pedestrian accesses onto a new pavement.

This month, MAC Architectural Services – acting on behalf of Big Sky Limited – has submitted updated proposals to the Planning Department. 

Graded “minor”, the new planning application requests an increase of 375mm – around a foot – for one of the blocks, and a terrace for its penthouse apartment.

The revised plans ask to add solar units, AC units and flues to the roofs of both blocks, and there is a request to alter the plans for the approved bike store to provide two garages.

The plans for the coast road development feature lawned front gardens for the ground floor apartments, as well as charging points for both electric vehicles and electric bikes. There is also visitor parking for both cars and bikes.

The revised plans also include minor amendments which account for a double garage for each of the penthouse apartments with electric vehicle and bike charging points.

A decision is expected regarding the amendments at the beginning of September.
