Millennium Park to extend to St Saviours Road

4th December 2018

Following a significant consultation period, and Board approval this week, Andium Homes is pleased to announce the preferred option for the new development on the Gas Works site, which received 79% of the support during the consultation.

The project will provide 60% of the site to deliver a substantial extension to the park of 5,480m2 which, on completion, will run up the side of Tunnell Street all the way to St Saviours Road. The preferred scheme will also deliver 117 new homes on the north of the site, with 106 residents parking spaces and a public car park providing an additional 172 spaces.

Andium Homes has instructed architects to submit an application for Outline Planning Consent as soon as possible.

Frank Walker OBE, Chairman for Andium Homes, said “I am absolutely delighted with the option that has been chosen for the future Gas Works development. This enables us to deliver on our vision for the site and what the States subsequently asked us to do following the debate earlier this year. This scheme is inter-dependent with our delivery of the Ann Court and Brewery sites, where we plan to deliver a mix of new homes and tenures, community and third sector facilities, pedestrian links, public realm and additional green spaces, all contributing to the regeneration of the North of Town. These plans are aligned with the Council of Ministers proposed Common Strategic Policy commitments and the Island Plan”.

Simon Crowcroft, Constable of St Helier, said “I welcome Andium Homes’ proposals to increase significantly the extent of the amenity space of our Millennium Town Park, as well as the provision of much needed public parking in the area. The reduction in the number of homes being provided on the site is also a great improvement on the original developer-led scheme for nearly 300 units, as it means the residents of the smaller number of new homes will enjoy much better facilities.”
