Plans have been revealed to redevelop Leale's Yard in Guernsey.

New proposals for the derelict site include building 320 new homes, a new car park and a new shop.

The development would also feature new green spaces, access roads, cycle paths and flood defences.

The plans have been submitted by the Channel Islands Co-operative Society and follow the approval of a planning framework for the brownfield site in June 2020.

Developers hope their plan will help remedy the ongoing housing crisis faced by the island and say the new homes will be available within three years of a planning approval.

Mark Cox from the Channel Islands Co-operative Society said: "Our plan for the site is that you can work on the site, you can live on the site and you can play on the site.

"It is generating a new community for the north of the island, so self-contained and everything will be available for those living on the site."

Some say the regeneration of the St Sampson site is long overdue, with numerous planning applications for new homes and parking having failed or lapsed.
