Plémont Estates Ltd have applied to Planning to build a mixture of three-, four- and five-bedroom houses on the site of the former Plémont Holiday Village, leaving about 18 vergées of land accessible to the public. The proposed house prices range from £370,000 up to £1.2 million.
In May last year plans to build 36 houses on the site were refused by Environment Minister Freddie Cohen. St Ouen Constable Ken Vibert later called on States Members to back his plans to make the land the subject of a compulsory purchase order, so that it could be returned to nature, and the House will debate this proposition next month.
At a press conference yesterday scheme architect Paul Harding said that the value of the site for the purpose of returning the land to nature would be £14.7 million, less demolition costs.
