ANDIUM Homes has announced a £5 million refurbishment plan for Jersey’s biggest high-rise estate.
The aim is to bring the Le Marais flats, which were built in 1972, in line with Decent Homes Standard guidelines.
However, the plan has already sparked controversy as hundreds of Islanders living in the social-rented housing are facing weeks of disruption and have been told to consider moving in with friends while work is carried out.
Tenants have been told that they will need to move out of their properties for at least six to eight weeks while workers remove asbestos and install new electrics, kitchens and bathrooms for the two-bedroom homes.
