Cour du Parc to be handed over to GHA
Wednesday 31st October 2012, 1:00PM GMT.
COUR du Parc, the island’s only tower block, will be refurbished and revamped in a deal that will see the States hand it over to the Guernsey Housing Association.
Housing minister Dave Jones told the States today that the option of refurbishment was about £3m. cheaper than buying land and developing replacement housing for the 40-plus flats elsewhere.
Three options remain for its future use.
The redesigned flats will provide one- and two-bedroom accommodation either for single people or couples on the GHA’s waiting list, or for States employees or a mixture of these.
