Drop-in event to view plans for Southwest St Helier Waterfront Visionary Framework
Jersey Development Company (JDC) is hosting a drop-in event at the Town Hall in preparation for the Public Inquiry of the Southwest St Helier Visionary Framework scheduled for 15 May 2023.
The public drop-in event will take place on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 March at St Helier’s Town Hall.
Updated plans and proposals will be available and members of the design team on hand to answer any questions islanders may have.
The Government of Jersey (GOJ) and JDC have undertaken extensive public engagement on the Waterfront proposals during the drafting of the Supplementary Planning Guidance for the Southwest St Helier Waterfront and the Bridging Island Plan, and during the development of JDC’s design proposals for the Waterfront area.
The public consultations have been consistently clear that islanders want a Waterfront that is landscape-led, delivers new homes, is mixed-use and creates a vibrant destination for people to live, work, visit and enjoy. The spatial strategy for the Island that was approved in the Bridging Island Plan is to concentrate development in and around existing urban centres. These Waterfront sites provide the opportunity for delivering a significant number of new homes and
thereby reducing pressure to rezone green fields.
A St Helier Waterfront website will be available for islanders unable to attend the public drop-in event which will be updated to include user-friendly formats of the Design Statement and various supportive documents which formed the Addendum to the Planning Application. The website can be found here.
