Plans in for 19 new homes off Route Militaire

Saturday 07 October 2023

Planners have received an application to construct 19 new two- and three-bedroom homes on a controversial agricultural site, Le Four Banal, just of Route Militaire in St Sampson.

It has just been submitted by Rosaire Properties Limited to develop the just over half of the 0.95-hectare site. Additional parcels of land in the area have been purchased to enable a first phase of development.

A development framework, which helps guide applicants towards an acceptable scheme for specific sites, was approved in 2020 by the Development & Planning Authority which said up to 34 homes could be built on the land.

This was despite concerns over traffic, impact on neighbouring properties, and the loss of green land being communicated. 

The scheme includes 12 two-bedroom and seven three-bedroom units in detached, semi-detached, and terraced styles reaching two storeys high. They feature gardens, garages, and parking spaces.

Environmental features, such as high-performance insulation, single ply flat roofing, and timber cladding are also included.

As the scheme only includes 19 homes, the affordable housing policy has not been triggered by one unit.

A planning application was previously received to create vehicular and pedestrian access to the site. 

The site is next to the Data Park site which was last year purchased by the Guernsey Housing Association. Nearby is the Kenilworth Vinery, also purchased by the States, Leale’s Yard, which Policy & Resources wants the States to invest into, and Pointues Rocques – all of which could soon be developed for high-density housing.

The application FULL/2023/17 can be found ONLINE.
