Environment & Infrastructure’s plan, which proposes a number of traffic changes in the north of the island, is aiming to help roads be ready for hundreds of new houses set to be built across several sites.

The introduction of a Ruette des Habitats has been proposed on the road between Rue Jacques and Rue Queripel, where motor access would be to properties only.

E&I has also proposed the widening of the two-way Robergerie to install a pavement or path to the west of Rue Queripel along the boundary of the Franc Fief housing site.

Peter and Jenny Clarke have lived in the area for 45 years.

‘I’m not sure how it’s going to be for residents only, whether they put bollards at the top of something I’m not sure, but we’ll have to get through somehow,’ said Mr Clarke.

‘I think a main road through the Data Park would be a good solution, there is enough space and it could pick up all the little lanes on the way through.’

Another resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said she was confused with the proposals and had not realised it was a consultation.

‘I wish there had been more consultation with us beforehand,’ she said.

‘I don’t quite understand how they’ve chosen what to do and which location, and I’m not sure how I can find out if they’re not holding a question-and-answer session.

‘I don’t know how I can support something that was simply posted through my letter box without context.’
