29 new homes for hotel site

25 July 2014

29 new homes will be built on the site of the old Samarès Coast Hotel in St Clement following approval by the Planning Applications Panel.

The hotel, which dates back to the 1960s, will be demolished and replaced by 18 new houses and 11 apartments.

A Planning Department report on the proposed scheme states that the existing hotel buildings are poor quality and the new proposals will provide a well-designed scheme, giving much needed housing to the highest reasonable density in a location supported by the Island Plan.

The panel vote on the scheme was split; three members voted for the plans and two against. Concerns centred on the views of neighbours who have raised objections.

Beachfront home in St Brelade approved

Approval was also given at yesterday’s meeting (24 July 2014) to the construction of a new home on the site of two existing properties on the beachfront in St Brelade’s Bay.

The applicant sought approval to knock down the 1960s property Longbeach, and to build on this site and the adjacent Zanzibar restaurant site, together creating 1,978 m² of accommodation within a three level home (one floor below ground).

The accompanying Planning Department report states that although the proposed development is large, its architectural style is innovative and takes account of the sensitive location.

The report says it makes the most of the site’s potential for views out to sea, and minimises its impact when viewed from Mont Sohier and the shoreline, and will result in a high quality contemporary development.

St Lawrence homes deferred

A decision on 10 new homes in St Lawrence on a field on La Rue de Haut was been deferred and will be considered by the Planning Minister.

The field was listed in both the 2002 and 2011 Island Plans as a housing site suitable for Category A housing, which is a mix of first time buyer and social rented homes.

However, the proposals, for five first time buyer and five social rented homes, were the subject of a petition by nearby residents. Their concerns centred on traffic, parking, the density of the proposed development and the loss of open space.

Three of the six panel members shared their concerns and decided against approving it.

The panel had rejected a previous application because the design, format and layout would have resulted in a cramped overdevelopment of the site.
