131 homes planned for 'Parc Le Lacheur'

Tuesday 13 September 2022

A public presentation saw people living near to the former Kenilworth Vinery afforded the opportunity to ask questions about the development which will see 60 one-bed flats, 41 two-bed houses, 28 three-bed houses and two five-bedroom houses built.

There are also plans for a further 16 other units to be built at the re-named Parc Le Lacheur, which have been earmarked for an area 'outside the scope of the current application'.

The Guernsey Housing Association is responsible for the development, and representatives were at the Rock Community Centre on New Road, for the two-hour opportunity on Saturday morning.

Despite the period of National Mourning, those there reported a "good turn out", with residents of the Vale and St Sampson's able to see the plans and to ask questions.

The Vale Constables said concerns previously raised by parishioners were addressed, including those around parking, drainage, the high water mark, and the site being on reclaimed land.

The proposals include plans for "publicly accessible parkland" which will serve the wider local area as well as residents of Parc Le Lacheur.

The plan for surface water discharge is to direct it into an existing douit; which will be widened, and a swale, with land levels raised to enable freer flowing draining, along with further flood risk mitigation measures to be introduced.

Parking, and traffic concerns for the surrounding roads, have been among the most prominent concerns expressed by parishioners.

The plans have confirmed proposals for a total of 206 parking spaces which has been designed on a basis of 1.5 spaces per dwelling.

There will also be 22 disabled parking spaces, located next to ground floor flats and the planned 5-bed units.

Four motorcycle parking areas, with space for up to 41 machines in total, will be installed, along with 14 bicycle bays, providing space for up to 71 spaces.

Each unit of accommodation will have its own private secure storage for bicycles.
