A drop-in session and public meeting have been arranged for Islanders who would like to find out more about the planned development on the Waterfront.
It was announced last month that UBS, a leading financial services business, had taken up a lease for 16,000 square feet of office space in the first building of the International Finance Centre, allowing the States of Jersey Development Company (SOJDC) to start work on the first phase of the development.
The Treasury and Resources Minister and SOJDC are now providing an opportunity for people to drop in and talk to representatives from the Jersey Development Company about the details of the scheme.
Senator Alan Maclean said “The States Assembly first agreed a plan to develop the Waterfront in 2008. Since then, the majority of Members have supported the concept through a total of five propositions attempting to defer or stop its progress.
“Now that sufficient pre-lets have been agreed, work on the first building of the financial district is due to begin. We would like to explain the vision for Jersey’s financial centre to islanders who are interested in, or concerned about, any aspects of it.
“We will be at the Town Hall from 4.30-6.30pm on Wednesday next week, available for one-to-one discussions with anyone who would like to find out more about plans for the International Finance Centre. From 7pm there will be a more formal public meeting, where people are welcome to hear a presentation and ask questions about what they have heard.”
Drop-in session – 4.30-6.30pm, Wednesday 10 June at the Town Hall, St Helier
Public meeting – 7-8.30pm, Wednesday 10 June at the Town Hall, St Helier
