No objections to planning transparency

IN THE long history of Town how many people have said ‘I’ll see you outside Weighbridge House’? Apart from a few developers, architects and planners, probably no one.

Pollet plans: What exactly is the point of planners?

I listened with interest to Deputy Burford’s comments on the phone-in on Sunday (31 January) regarding development at the Lower Pollet. Like many islanders I am appalled at this proposal. Potentially three diverse locally owned tax paying businesses (and a convenience store) could be destroyed, and replaced by a large supermarket that will be part of a UK multinational.

‘Please consider residents’

AS A resident of St Peter Port I fully appreciate that we, like St Sampson’s, are designated ‘main centres’ and as such are the two areas of the island marked out for the majority of domestic, commercial and retail development. I’m certainly not against development in either of these locations, but it seems that little or no real consideration is given to the residents who actually live close to development sites.

No evidence that St Martin’s houses are ‘much needed’

AS THE new road layout along The Quay beds in, there is another project on Environment’s to do list which is arguably more pressing.

37-unit clos plans worry residents

Jolene Blampied lives opposite the proposed entrance to the planned new clos at St Martin’s. Like other residents she is concerned about the development’s effect on traffic in the area if it goes ahead. (7814874)

BUSIER roads, the loss of prime Guernsey farmland and straining local infrastructure were a few of the objections to a proposed new housing development in the heart of St Martin’s.
