Vale Avenue houses to be demolished by ‘late June’
PREPARATION has started for the demolition of four derelict properties owned by Guernsey Electricity on Vale Avenue.
The surrounding pavement and parking was closed from 9 April for public safety and demolition will begin at the end of next month.
The work is due to be completed in June, making the area safe by putting up fencing, before the company considers further planning options.
Guernsey Electricity said the work would have a small impact on local residents and businesses.
‘Where possible we will minimise the inconvenience while keeping the safety of our staff and the local residents a priority,’ a spokesman said.
‘While we will be on site until late June, a section of the road will be closed for a maximum of one week at the end of May.
‘We appreciate your patience during this time.’
The company said it would be engaging with the public for ideas and discussions on potential options before applying for planning permission.
It took the company more than 10 years to be granted planning permission to demolish the four houses.
