Grantez public inquiry reminder

07 April 2016

Members of the public who want to comment on plans to replace Grantez glasshouses with homes, ahead of a public inquiry next month, have until close of business tomorrow (8 April) to submit their views.

A planning application (P/2015/1860) was submitted to the Environment Department in December 2015. It asks permission to demolish glasshouses in fields on La Rue de Grantez, St Ouen, build eleven homes with landscaping and vehicle access, and change the use of fields from agriculture to natural green space.

Island Plan

The Minister for the Environment, Deputy Steve Luce has called for a public inquiry because the application is not in line with the States-approved Island Plan.

The public inquiry, which is intended to provide a transparent process for people to give their views, is being held on 10 and 11 May and is expected to last for a day and a half. It will be carried out by Philip Staddon who is based in the UK, and who will hear other planning appeals while he is in the Island.

Public Inquiry

Everyone is welcome to submit a comment on the proposals. Known as Statements of Case, submissions should be sent to, or posted to the Programme Officer c/o Department of the Environment, South Hill, St Helier, clearly marked for the attention of the La Rue de Grantez Inquiry Programme Officer. The deadline is Friday 8 April 2016.

The inquiry will open at 10 am on Tuesday 10 May 2016 at St Paul's Centre, Dumaresq Street, St Helier, and is expected to last two days. Those representations already made on the planning application will be considered and may be heard by the independent inspector.
