Police headquarters: planning approval welcomed

02 July 2013

The Minister for Home Affairs and the Assistant Minister for Treasury and Resources have responded to the news that a planning application to build a new police headquarters at La Route du Fort has been approved.
Assistant Minister for Treasury and Resources, Deputy Eddie Noel said “I would like to thank the Minister for Planning and Environment for his careful consideration of the scheme.
“We have worked hard to address points raised as part of the consultation process and I am delighted that the new building has now been approved.
“This is a crucial development, not only in meeting the long-overdue needs of the States of Jersey Police, but in freeing up the Summerland Site for the development of much-needed affordable housing for local people.
“The project will also provide a valuable stimulus for the construction industry during what continues to be a difficult economic time. It is hoped construction will begin during the second quarter of 2014.”
Minister for Home Affairs, Senator Ian Le Marquand, said “I am very pleased that the new Police Headquarters has been approved.
“After many years of living in inadequate and inappropriate accommodation, we can now look forward to the development of the first ever purpose-built police headquarters in Jersey.
“I am particularly pleased for Mike Bowron and all those at the States of Jersey Police as the new building will provide the kind of working environment they deserve and need to deliver modern policing.”
