Major regeneration project for the north of town

23rd September 2015

​​​Last Friday Andium Homes acquired land at the former Ann Court site from the States.

This represents the final step in the assembly of the entire site which is surrounded by Providence Street, Ann Street, Charles Street and Ann Place and is close to other recently completed developments at De Quetteville Court and Brooklyn Court.

In May Andium Homes also purchased Toddy’s Bar from Randalls and we will now be able to start the process of preparing outline designs for the new development.

The proposed development will provide a minimum of 140 new affordable homes as well as a new137 space short stay shopper car park which will be operated by Transport and Technical Services (TTS) who will lease the facility from Andium Homes when it is completed. The development also provides an opportunity to look at wider regeneration initiatives which will help to further enhance the​ north of town and we are looking forward to engaging with all of the local stakeholders over our ​​proposals.

Ian Gallichan, Chief Executive at Andium Homes said “The area around the Ann Court site is an important location for Andium Homes and one where we have recently invested in both new and refurbished homes with our projects at De Quetteville Court and Brooklyn Court.”

It is anticipated that an outline planning application will be submitted next year and subject to gaining planning approval the project should commence in 2017.

The Housing Minister, Deputy Anne Pryke, said “This is another example of government and affordable housing providers working together to provide the good quality homes that Islanders need, while also delivering investment and improvement in this part of our town. This fits with our overall aim of improving the Island’s housing – focusing on supply, quality, and better neighbourhoods”

Deputy Noel, TTS Minister, also welcomed the transfer, saying “Additional shopper parking for 137 vehicles will help support local traders by providing convenient access to those using the Markets, West’s Centre and other facilities in the east of town”.
