Planning guidelines for the regeneration of the Jersey Gas site in Tunnell Street have been released for consultation by the Minister for Planning and Environment.
The release of draft planning guidance by Deputy Rob Duhamel for this site – which includes land occupied by the gas holder together with the Jersey Gas offices, showroom, stores and accommodation – sets out a framework for what could happen if this site were to be redeveloped. It follows the approval of the North of Town Masterplan by the States last year.
“The North of Town Masterplan provides a high level strategy for the regeneration of this part of town. This new draft guidance sets out more detailed planning guidance about the planning issues and constraints that need to be taken into account to realise the successful development of this key site,” said Deputy Duhamel.
“The potential redevelopment of this land represents an exciting opportunity to continue the regeneration of this area, which has already been started by the Town Park, and to provide new homes in a high quality urban environment,” he said.
The release of this site for development is dependent upon the relocation of the Jersey Gas operation at Tunnell Street to land at La Collette, where it already has an existing facility. There is also the potential to relocate its Kosangas operation from Les Ruettes at St John.
The Minister is inviting comment on the draft development brief over a four week period, ending on Friday 18 May 2012.
