HOUSING has released details of five areas that could be used to help deal with the island’s growing need for social housing.
It has earmarked four in St Sampson’s – Belgrave Vinery, Pointues Rocques, Saltpans, and Franc Fief – and one in St Peter Port – La Vrangue – as potential sites. All would require States approval.
With the exception of Belgrave Vinery, the others are privately owned.
Housing minister Dave Jones said the soon-to-be-released results of his department’s recent Housing Needs Survey, which will identify the island’s total housing needs, not just social, would shape the direction of policy over the next five years.
