Plan for seven-bed house and 20 flats above St Aubin’s Bay
PLANS for a seven-bedroom house and two apartment buildings above St Aubin’s Bay have been submitted to Planning by Dandara.
The site off the top of Tower Road and above First Tower is currently occupied by the property Claremont House and also includes a neighbouring field known as High Gorse.
If approved when the application comes before the Planning Committee, the single house will be built furthest away from Tower Road, overlooking an open field to the south and with panoramic views over the St Aubin’s Bay.
The total inside area of the house would be 826 square metres spread over two floors with semi-basement parking as well as a roof terrace and balcony area.
The three-storey apartment blocks will each consist of ten two-bedroom flats, also with semi-basement parking, and those facing west will have views over the bay.
It has cost £38,545 to submit the application and the plans have been drawn up by Axis Mason architects.
A design statement submitted with the plans says that the development has been designed to maximise the views from the top of Tower Road.
‘The dwellings have been arranged to respond to the orientation and views towards St Aubin’s Bay,’ Axis Mason writes. ‘The layout of the apartments takes advantage of the high levels of natural day light.’
The statement adds: ‘In addition, the single-family dwelling employs similar benefits while maximising additional views of the existing green field towards the south.’
The application also includes proposals for landscaping and gardens.
‘Ground-floor apartments are to be provided with private gardens and external amenity spaces which exceed the required minimum standard, while first-floor and second-floor apartments are to be provided with external amenity spaces through balconies and terraces,’ the statement says.
‘The family dwelling is designed with numerous private gardens and external amenity spaces overlooking the green fields to the south.’
