13 new homes approved at Cobo in Guernsey

Approval has been given to build 13 homes next door to the La Mare de Carteret playing fields.

Guernsey's Development & Planning Authority have approved the Development Framework for the site. This provides guidance on how the area might be developed, by setting out how policies in the Island Development Plan will be applied to the site.

It was decided the area of land on La Pre De La Cotte, Route de Carteret has the potential for 23 new homes.

A six-week consultation took place and some concerns were raised by neighbours about the impact on traffic and road safety, the development of greenfield land, flood risk and surface water drainage and the impact on the nature trail and on biodiversity.

The Planning Authority say all the concerns raised were considered and several amendments were made to the the draft.
