ISLANDERS are being encouraged to provide feedback on draft planning guidance for the delivery of affordable homes on re-zoned housing sites across Jersey.
The guidance, prepared by Environment Minister Jonathan Renouf, examines land allocated for development under the Bridging Island Plan – approved by the States last year – in St John, St Martin, St Mary, St Ouen, St Peter, St Saviour and Trinity.
Deputy Renouf said the release of guidance for consultation represented ‘the next step’ in progressing development in these areas.
‘These sites will play a crucial role in ensuring not only the supply of more affordable homes, but also the development of sustainable and diverse parish communities,’ he said.
‘I will continue, along with the Minster for Housing and Communities, to engage with the Constables about the delivery of homes in their parishes, and will work with all involved in the development of these sites to ensure we deliver good homes and create great places to live.
‘I’d particularly encourage Islanders who live near these areas to look at the draft briefs and to comment on them, as their views will help shape the final supplementary planning guidance.’
The draft guidance can be read on the gov.je website and Islanders can comment by emailing email@example.com or by post to Draft SPG – public consultation, Place and Spatial Planning, Cabinet Office, Government of Jersey, 19-21 Broad Street, St Helier, JE2 3RR.
The consultation is open until 23 June.
