Waterfront Public Inquiry

Feb 14, 2022

Public Inquiry into Waterfront plans

The Minister for the Environment, Deputy John Young, has called a public inquiry into the recently-lodged plans to further develop Jersey’s Waterfront area.

The South West St Helier planning application, submitted by the Jersey Development Company, is for 1,001 homes, basement carparking, retail, commercial, leisure, arts and cultural facilities, public and private open spaces, new pedestrian and vehicle access and other landscaping including a relocated slipway and work on the sea wall.

The public inquiry, which will be held after the inquiry into the Our Hospital plans and following the elections, will consider the application against the Bridging Island Plan.

Deputy Young said: “The terms of reference for the inquiry will be issued at a later date, but will certainly be wide to ensure all the issues likely to be raised by the community can be considered.

“An independent inspector will be appointed nearer the time to oversee the process and provide the next Environment Minister with a detailed review of the relevant issues before any decision on the application can be made.”
