Strategic Land Use Plan ‘must be complete before we look at war memorial’
Saturday 16th March 2013, 5:00PM GMT.
A SUB GROUP that manages States property has denied hampering an attempt to build a privately-funded civic amenity centre and refurbished war memorial on the site of the Sunken Garden.
But the Treasury and Resources committee confirmed that it has no intention of looking at the plans until 2015.
Group chairman and Treasury board member Deputy Tony Spruce, pictured, said he had made the position clear to the Monumental Gardens Committee, which is behind the project.
‘They have been categorically told in a letter from me that the States would not consider the proposals until the Strategic Land Use Plan is complete,’ he said.
The Assembly approved the guiding principle of the SLUP last year.
