Humour writ large as St Saviour’s site developer supersizes plan notice

News | Published:

AFTER complaints that a site notice on a new development in St Saviour’s was not prominent enough, the developer has made it much more visible – by moving it and making it giant-size.

The site at Inchfad, Route des Bas Courtils, is being developed by FGR Property Ltd and the work first attracted attention when the original property was torn down before planning permission was given for the work.

This was due to an engineer being concerned about the likelihood that a wall could collapse if it was not removed.

Then there was a resubmission of the original plans for the new building which changed some of the key features.

As a result, the douzaine has sent an objection to the Development & Planning Authority.

In accordance with the law, a site notice was placed at the property to inform people of the work, but the fact that this was attached to a gate on a field behind the development caused concern.

So in a cheeky move to address the anxiety, the developer had a sign about 6ft high created and attached to the fence in front of the development.

‘It’s intended in humour,’ said Jason Hobbs of project designers Jason Hobbs Architectural Services.

‘Our client wanted to make sure that everybody was aware that he was carrying out modifications.’
