Major affordable housing scheme could get the go-ahead
ONE of the Island's largest affordable-housing developments in recent times could be given the go-ahead by the Planning Committee this week.
On Thursday the Planning Committee is due to consider developer G R Langlois's plans to build 200 homes on an old commercial tomato nursery to the south of Samarès Manor in St Clement.
The site, which covers more than 20 vergées, was earmarked for affordable homes in the 2002 Island Plan but this was not made official until the States approved the current Island Plan in 2011.
Planning officers have recommended that the proposals for 20 one-bedroom units, 89 two-bedroom and 91 three-bedroom houses, with parking and communal landscaped areas, are approved.
The public meeting is due to convene at St Paul's Centre at 9.30 am.
