Views sought on use of Cyril Le Marquand House
ISLANDERS have been asked to give their views on the future use of Cyril Le Marquand House in St Helier.
A public consultation has commenced following a draft planning guidance report issued by Environment Minister John Young for the redevelopment and regeneration of the land.
Named after long-serving Senator Cyril Le Marquand, who was president of the Finance and Economic Committee from 1957 to 1980, the building was vacated in early 2019 as government staff moved to alternative offices in Broad Street and La Motte Street.
The minister wishes to have Islanders’ views on what the site should be used for, what form of development people want to see there and what improvements to the local area the new development could support.
The guidance document states that a key issue for the redevelopment of the site was whether it would continue to provide office accommodation or be put to an alternative use. Using part of the ground-floor for retail use is also mooted as one possible option.
Feedback can be given at gov.je/Government/Consultations with a closing date of 31 March.
