CARNAGE AT THE ESPLANADE CAR PARK – PLANNING PROCEDURE IGNORED (PLEASE SHARE). We publish photos taken this morning of the current (and we believe illegal) ‘landscaping’ taking place at the Esplanade car park which we are monitoring. Reports from the public are currently pouring in to SOSJ.

Unfortunately we missed photographing the dead rabbits before they were hurriedly cleared away.

The mature healthy trees were until today feeding and resting places for many species of migratory and resident birds who need these last valuable green spaces on the waterfront.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: Please contact your States representative and ask him or her to raise this urgently with the Planning Minister.

The planning conditions called for a phased plan by the SoJDC in relocation of the car park in phases. This application is currently live and has not been determined.

To date 325 individual Planning objections have been received by Planning and a decision has not yet been made on this application which is combined with Building no 5.(Application reference P/2014/2192 – Building 5 Esplanade Quarter and temporary relocation of public car parking)

The JDC are displaying a breathtaking arrogance in ignoring the Planning procedure. Even if they do have enough pre-let agreements signed to enable them to start work on Building 4, (which we doubt) they should not be steaming ahead destroying the trees and bushes in the car park and spending thousands on a new temporary car park without the phasing plans even being approved.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: Please contact your States representative and ask him or her to raise this urgently with the Planning Minister.
