Bid to revitalise "important areas" around Town


A public drop-in session is being held today inviting open discussion about how to regenerate areas including the South Esplanade and the Lower Pollet.

The Development & Planning Authority is staging a public drop-in session, on behalf of Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design, at the George Crossan Gallery in the Market Buildings.

It will run from 10:00 until 16:00 is part of Tibbalds’ preparation for drafting a Development Framework for the three remaining Regeneration Areas in St Peter Port, which are the Lower Pollet, South Esplanade and Mignot Plateau, and Mansell Street/Le Bordage.

“This consultation is the beginning of a process to regenerate three important areas of St Peter Port and contribute to its vitality and vibrancy," said DPA President Victoria Oliver.

When complete, the Development Framework will provide planning guidance for the future development of these areas, which means that anyone submitting planning applications will need to meet the requirements set out in it.

“The better the framework, the more future plans will respond to local needs, so now is an important moment for people to get involved and have their say. We would like to hear from as many people as possible.”

This event forms part of an initial consultation period that Tibbalds - a London-based urban design firm - are running from Wednesday 18 to Wednesday 25 November. For anyone not able to attend the drop-in event, information about the Development Framework and how to submit comments can be found at https://gov.gg/developmentframeworks.

Following this initial consultation, a combined draft Development Framework for the three areas will be developed, which will then be followed by a further round of consultation that will take place during a formal six-week period in spring 2021.
