Too much building in town, says former Constable

News | Published:

THE town centre is becoming over-developed and unattractive according to a former St Helier Constable, who has criticised the number of planned developments.

Bob le Brocq, who now sits on the parish roads committee, said that a raft of large new developments in the town was not leaving enough areas of green space for residents to enjoy.

Mr le Brocq said that Jersey needed to give more consideration to the changes being made to St Helier and take action to protect the area.

'What sort of society are we creating now for the next five or six generations?,' he said. 'We're not creating any green space anywhere in St Helier - we had the park which was ten years late - but apart from that what sort of environment are we creating and what sort of problems come from that kind of environment?'

Online Poll: Do you think there is too much building in St Helier?
