Deputy Montfort Tadier has expressed his support for plans to move Les Quennevais School in Jersey to a new site.
A new school is "long overdue" he says, describing it as "inadequate and vastly undersized."
As a former pupil and long-standing political representative for the area, he believes it is vital to make sure the move is the correct one.
One possible location is on the corner of Les Quennevais sports field; Deputy Tadier says a balance must be struck to mitigate any loss of green fields.
He advises moving the Parish Hall to the current site and also having some housing there with open green spaces, allotments and shared community facilities.
The public in Jersey are being asked their views on where the new Les Quennevais school should be built.
Forty-million pounds has been put aside for the project. Details of the plans are available online, click here to be taken to the government's consultation website.There's three main potential sites being considered.
- Option 1: South-east corner of Les Quennevais sports field.
- Option 2: Fields south of Rue Carrée.
- Option 3: Fields south of Rue Carrée plus the football pitchof St Brelade’s Social Club.
