The Development & Planning Authority will be facilitating a public drop-in session on behalf of Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design at the George Crossan Gallery in the Market Buildings on Wednesday 18th November between 10am-4pm. This is part of Tibbalds’ preparation for drafting a Development Framework for the three remaining Regeneration Areas in St Peter Port.
Members of the public are invited to share their views for how these Regeneration Areas could be improved for the wider benefit of St. Peter Port as a whole. The three Regeneration Areas comprise the Lower Pollet, South Esplanade and Mignot Plateau, and Mansell Street/Le Bordage.
The aim of the drop-in is to gather a ‘big picture’ view of how members of the community view and experience the different areas. Materials will be provided to help answer the questions being asked and representatives of the Planning Service will also be on hand to assist.
This event is part of an initial consultation period that Tibbalds are running from Wednesday 18th to Wednesday 25th November. For anyone not able to attend the drop-in event, information about this Development Framework and how to submit comments can be found here.
Conversations are also taking place with stakeholders from within the States of Guernsey, property owners and key stakeholder groups. Following this initial consultation, a combined draft Development Framework for the three areas will be developed, which will then be followed by a further round of consultation that will take place during a formal six-week period in spring 2021.
Deputy Victoria Oliver, President of the Development & Planning Authority, commented: “This consultation is the beginning of a process to regenerate three important areas of St Peter Port and contribute to its vitality and vibrancy.
“When complete, the Development Framework will provide planning guidance for the future development of these areas, which means that anyone submitting planning applications will need to meet the requirements set out in it. The better the framework, the more future plans will respond to local needs, so now is an important moment for people to get involved and have their say. We would like to hear from as many people as possible”.
