FINAL plans for major changes to the former church at St James, including recording studios and a new café, have been submitted for approval.

Jersey Property Holdings, which looks after States-owned buildings in the Island, wants the site, including the vicarage and St James School, to become the Island's Youth Service headquarters by 2015.

A two-storey modern glass walkway, which would give access to the St James auditorium's upper galleries where the recording studios would be built, forms part of the planning application.

How much?

Bean About A Bit

however much it costs, any investment to promote the well being and development of our youth can only be seen as a positive thing.

Yes, giving our youth workers, sorry, our youth, a new recording studio to play with. is much better than giving our nurses a pay rise or reducing hospital waiting lists!

Why waste everyone's time and effort with a planning application? It's a government owned development company, and a done deal, so just get on with it. What Jersey Property Holdings want, they will get, isn't that how it works here ?

The new building doesn't look right alongside the old church building. Yet again another States Cock-up!

Don't you mean 'iconic' building?

Personally, I'd knock the old church down and build something worthwhile there. (Incidentally, the acoustics in the old church are diabolical).
