Kensington Place property acquired

22 November 2017

The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Eddie Noel, has authorised the purchase of The Maisonette, 44 Kensington Place, which is needed for the proposed Future Hospital site.

Following the States decision on the site of the hospital in November 2016, the Future Hospital project team has been in contact with owners and occupiers of properties in Kensington Place whose homes and businesses are required for the site of the new hospital. The Minister wants to avoid compulsory purchase if at all possible and is therefore happy for negotiations to take place with owners on a case by case basis.

Although vacant possession of the property is not needed until the third quarter of 2018, the current owners have already found alternative accommodation and, as a result, want to move sooner.

Deputy Noel  said “This is the first property purchase for the Future Hospital site. This is an opportunity for us and the vendor to move forward that neither could afford to miss. It is unreasonable for us to ask the owner to wait and risk losing the property they wanted. Discussions will continue with other owners and we will look to acquire the remaining properties by negotiation, once the decision on funding has been considered by the States Assembly on 12 December.”
