Plans to demolish town centre buildings

MAJOR plans for a £14 million redevelopment of derelict buildings in the heart of St Helier – which would see the demolition of six historic buildings – have been submitted by the Co-op.
The organisation has applied to the Planning department with a revised version of their Charing Cross scheme that caused controversy towards the end of 2012.
Last year Co-op leaders accused the Planning department of a U-turn by showing support for their application during the early stages of discussions, before ultimately recommending the project be refused.
The department said that there were issues over the size and scale of the original scheme as well as the impact on the historic environment.
