BDK Architects visualisation of what can be achieved at St Aubin - The Facts

 

·    It is NOT a Masterplan, nor anywhere near a developed Design.

·    What is does provide is a series of ideas in a co-ordinated proposal which, responding to Public comment, will be moulded and developed.

·    The amount of enabling development to pay for new Public Amenities comprising a new Public Park, underground Car Park, Boat Slip & Hoist, Boat Park and Village Square will be determined following full detailed costing.

·    There is no Developer or Financier behind the Proposal.

·    Both Guy de Faye & BDK Architects fully intend that the project will be driven by local Jersey people, backed by a Public Subscription or Public / Private Partnership, with designs realised by local Jersey Architects.

 

The Jersey Island Plan 2002 fully supports this proposal with Policy BE11 stipulating that:-

 

“Proposals for the construction of a land reclamation scheme adjacent to St Aubin’s harbour, including public car parking, to restore St Aubin’s village its unique character, as approved by the States on 23 July 1996, will be favourably considered.”

We commit to developing a detailed scheme that will truly “restore St Aubin’s village its unique character”

A survey carried out by First Research in January 2008 discovered that 66% of St Aubin Residents and 65% of Visitors would welcome land reclamation to solve the car parking problem and enhance St Aubin as a destination.
