Plans show new look for Cour du Parc

WORK to refurbish and modernise Guernsey’s only tower block will begin in September if planners approve it.
The Guernsey Housing Association’s application to Environment involves increasing the number of flats from 42 to 50, with a mix of one- and two-bedrooms, to house single people and couples.
They will be for social rented housing, partial ownership and potentially key workers employed by the States.
‘Structurally this building is sound. However, internally, it is in real need of modernisation,’ said GHA chief executive Steve Williams.
‘This high-rise building is a new challenge for GHA but we have done our homework on tower block refurbishments elsewhere and, with careful planning and specification, intend to produce an attractive place to live.’
