Housing set to reveal exactly which sites it wants for development
Monday 7th January 2013, 5:00PM GMT.
THIS spring Housing is planning to announce its preferred sites that could be used to deal with the island’s growing housing needs.
The department is continuing to look at what areas of land should be used to cover the needs of Guernsey, especially for social and partial ownership housing.
It is focusing on five areas that have been earmarked by the States since the mid-1990s as having potential for development when other opportunities have dried up.
Four of these sites, called Housing Target Areas, are in St Sampson’s – Belgrave Vinery, Pointues Rocques, Saltpans and Franc Fief. Another is in St Peter Port – La Vrangue.
Housing chief officer Stephen Langford, pictured, confirmed the department’s proposals would be drawn up soon for an upcoming States report.
