The Constable, Len Norman, says that the parish is already ‘overburdened’ and that the houses are not necessary. He was responding to proposals in the draft Island Plan which proposes building between 200 and 250 houses across seven parishes.

He is supported by St Clement Deputies Ian Gorst and Anne Dupré, who are also fighting against further development.

The Constable, who said that at a parish assembly in 2005 parishioners were against the proposal for housing on the site, has written to Environment Minister Freddie Cohen asking him to take Samarès Nursery off the list of sites to be rezoned for housing.

In his letter, he says: ‘I write to formally request you to remove Samarès Nursery from the list of category A housing sites on the grounds that it is not necessary and overburdens a parish which has already contributed more than its fair share of housing provision for the Jersey population.’
