Strawberry Farm car park bid is rejected
AN APPLICATION to turn the front of the former Strawberry Farm into a car park has been rejected – a decision which is now being appealed.
The application was submitted after a compliance notice from the States ordering the property owners to remove a number of vehicles from the site.
It would have seen the land change use and become independent from the rest of the site, with capacity to store or park up to 80 cars.
The plans were refused on the grounds that they failed to comply with the Island Development Plan, as there was no nearby centre that required a car park and a number of the greenhouses still functioned.
A separate planning application to convert the building into five houses is still being considered.
