There’s no place like home for residents of new Clos Barbier
Friday 11th January 2013, 8:30AM GMT.
AFTER 19 years on the Housing Department’s transfer list, couple Pam and Colin Knight moved into their new flat this week.
They are just two of several islanders settling in at the new Clos Barbier – a complex of 24 two-bedroom apartments in St Martin’s, built by the Guernsey Housing Association in partnership with the Housing Department.
Politicians and the media were given a tour of the properties yesterday, which are next to the Rue Jehannet Estate and have been designed for older islanders.
Housing Minister Dave Jones said he was pleased with the completed flats and said this was a good example of the successful relationship between the GHA and the department.
