The Environment Minister has ordered a Public Inquiry into the plans for major new housing developments at the Ann Street Brewery site and the Mayfair Hotel.
An independent Planning Inspector will be appointed to conduct the Public Inquiry, with islanders being invited to share their views on the plans.
Deputy John Young last week signed a Ministerial Decision, stating that he would not make a decision on either application until a Public Inquiry had been held.
He added that the developments are “likely to have a significant effect on the interests of a substantial part of the population” and that the public should be consulted in accordance with Planning and Building Laws.

The first application relates to Andium Homes’ plans to build 189 one-bedroom and 82 two-bedroom flats on the site of the former Ann Street Brewery.
The plans also include 163 car spaces in an underground parking, 340 cycle spaces and the creation of a “town woodland” and park areas.
The second application relates to proposals to demolish the Mayfair Hotel to make way for 137 one-bedroom and 67 two-bedroom flats.
A date for the Inquiry will be released at a later date.
