Application reference P/2014/2192 – Building 5 Esplanade Quarter and temporary
relocation of public car parking.
I object to the above proposal(s), as part of the masterplan, which are important for St Helier because of:
1. The “temporary” relocation of the car parking is bad for St Helier, as users will have to park further away from town/business and this will have a negative effect resulting in lost business in town.
2. The “temporary” relocation of the car parking, as part of the masterplan, is for an unknown period and SoJDC need to clarify the timing of this, including the construction of the new public replacement car park as a first part of phase one.
3. The proposed six large office buildings, with no other use, will not be good for St Helier, and the proposed mixed use scheme, with housing/public winter garden, should be provided immediately, or SoJDC should clarify when/how these will be delivered.
4. The £50 million return to the taxpayer should be guaranteed, as approved by the States, to provide social housing, and SoJDC should clarify when/how this will be paid, as a payment in 2035 is too long to wait.
