£3m. plan to move the War Memorial

A piazza with parking for 88 cars underneath could be built on the site of the Sunken Garden at no cost to taxpayers.
The proposal has come from the Monumental Gardens Committee, which wants to create a more suitable location for the Bailiwick War Memorial at the top of Smith Street.
It believes the project would be an ideal way to commemorate the centenary of the 1914-18 War and the 50th anniversary of the Liberation in 2015. The project would also provide a civic amenity centre for a range of community events.
Committee chairman Bob Place told a meeting of invited guests at Government House yesterday that the purpose of the presentation was to gauge views on a solution that would come at no cost to the States.
