Plans to build 150 homes within conservation area


Up to 150 new homes could be built within a conservation area in Guernsey.

The site at Pointues Rocques in St Sampson falls within the Delancey Conservation Area, which was given the status late last year.

According to the proposals, by the Planning Service, the site falls within the St Sampson (The Bridge) Main Centre Outer Area, as well as the Delancey Conservation Area and is designated as a Housing Allocation Site under the Island Development Plan.

They say policies state that the site can only be developed for residential accommodation and, if appropriate, complementary development.

It could also mean making major changes to the road layout to accommodate an increase in traffic.

The size of the proposed development is 2.5 hectares and includes a former vinery. It would see more than thirty affordable homes built.

The public are invited to have their say until late September.
