St Helier - Urban Character Appraisal - Willie Miller Urban Design - Public Workshop, Weds 11th Dec

Islanders are invited to give their views on St Helier

Islanders are being invited to attend a public workshop which will contribute to the conservation of the character of St Helier. It's free, and is being run twice, at St Paul's Centre:

  1. Tuesday 10th December, 6-8pm; and
  2. Wednesday 11th December, 10am-12pm.

The Urban Character Appraisal Workshop will explore how St Helier has changed over the last decade, the development pressures facing the town, and areas of potential opportunity for future growth. There are limited spaces for the workshop, please click here for full details and to register for a place.

The workshop is one of the ways in which the views of Islanders have changed since 2005 when the work was undertaken by Willie Miller Urban Design. The company has been commissioned to update its work to develop appropriate planning policies for the town related to:

  • assessing sensitivity to change;
  • identifying key views to be protected/enhanced;
  • identifying opportunity areas for densification and/or tall buildings;
  • developing design principles for height, massing, grouping, materiality; and
  • developing policies for improving the public open spaces (the public realm) that we all share and enjoy.

The consultants will submit a report in early 2020 and this will be used to develop the urban design policies in the next Island Plan.
