Knock down ‘ugly’ Cour du Parc, say neighbours
Saturday 6th October 2012, 3:00PM BST.
PEOPLE living in its shadow are demanding that a derelict tower block be bulldozed rather than ‘refurbished’ as part of mystery plans for Cour du Parc.
Neighbours of the ageing St Peter Port flats were yesterday calling for the ‘eyesore’ to finally be demolished as the Housing Department, with the support of Treasury and Resources, announced it would unveil fresh plans for the block.
Housing minister Dave Jones revealed the department proposes to ‘refurbish and reconfigure’ the site at La Charroterie, but would not give details of the housing needs it would meet until a States meeting at the end of the month.
As both States departments remained tight-lipped over the plans, Deputy Barry Brehaut fired a series of questions in a bid to get more answers from the Housing minister and Treasury and Resources minister Gavin St Pier.
