Design guidance for St Helier

​About this guidance​

This guidance deals with the ways in which the character of St Helier can be maintained and enhanced through the process of development control. It is based upon the St Helier Urban Character appraisal and has been supplemented by work undertaken by the Department of the Environment. It consists of three parts: 

Part 1

Overarching design principles that should be considered during the design and development control phases when development change is proposed

Part 2

A set of guidelines – character area design guidance – for each of the defined character areas for St. Helier together with additional guidance, for four sub areas for character area 7: Parade and Esplanade (see map 1).

Part 3

Advice on the deployment of the design guidance as part of the process of development control, including how the guidance should be applied relative to the policy regime for tall buildings set by Island Plan policy BE5: Tall buildings.
