Concerns in La Coupee as yet more flats planned
Monday 3rd December 2012, 5:00PM GMT.
PLANS for a larger development at Coupee Lane, St Peter Port, have been submitted to Environment Department, but neighbours are once again concerned about the impact it could have on the area.
An application for 10 flats on the small site close to Cornet Street was approved in 2011, despite residents’ objections.
But construction work never began and the developer, Coupee Lane Ltd, has now applied for an even larger development with 17 flats.
The extra space has been acquired after the developer bought two properties bordering the site – La Recherche on Cliff Street and a cottage to the west – and has proposed knocking them down.
That would leave enough room for 14 basement parking spaces and three outside spaces, as well as 13 two-bed flats, three one-bed flats and a three-bed flat spread over four floors.
