Plan to replace four-bedroom house in the National Park
PLANS have been submitted to demolish a four-bedroom home in a secluded St Brelade bay – within Jersey’s National Park – and replace it with a two-bedroom house.
If approved, the property’s internal floor area would reduce in size by about 83.5 sq metres, according to a design statement accompanying a planning application.
Businessman Bernard Fairman, who has lodged the plans, also hopes to alter the location of the property, called Morningside, to provide some ‘breathing space’ between it and the adjacent property, Beauport Place.
Both properties are located in Bouilly Port – between Beauport and the western corner of St Brelade’s Bay.
The area is also home to a small number of other properties, including Beauport Battery – previously owned by former Formula One World Champion Nigel Mansell.
A design statement, put together by Riva Architects, says that Mr Fairman wants to adhere strictly to the National Park policy and reinstate the ‘important scenic quality’ of the area.
‘Morningside currently retains all the constructional and environmental shortcomings associated with 60s/70s domestic architecture,’ the design statement read. ‘These have further been compounded by the addition of inappropriate extensions to the north, which also compromise the adaptability of the existing building.
‘The new proposals for Morningside have also been designed to integrate carefully with the recently completed property to the south – Bouilly House, which is under separate ownership.
‘The rationalisation of the existing landscaping elements seeks to better integrate the Morningside grounds and hillside areas with those of Beauport Place.’
