Parish Assembly to consider house purchase
Wednesday 21st November 2012, 5:00AM GMT.
PLANS to purchase an £800,000 property in Belmont Road to create a walkway and cycle access to the Millennium Town Park are being put to a St Helier Parish Assembly this evening.
The scheme being recommended by the roads committee and Procureurs du Bien Public involves the purchasing from the Jersey Gas Company of 32 Belmont Road, a Victorian terraced, three-storey house in which there are four flats, with parking and an existing through-way to Tunnell Street from the Belmont Road entrance.
If the proposal is approved by the assembly and the parish purchases the property, which is a potentially listed building, the access to Tunnell Street would be used to create the public walkway to the Town Park, and the building would remain intact.
The assembly, being held at the Town Hall from 7pm, will also be asked to approve a £100,000 contribution from the parish towards the £260,000 cost of restoring the Victorian swimming pool at West Park.
