Deputy doubts the value of £1.4m street revamp

A ST HELIER Deputy has raised concerns over the economic viability of a £1.4 million scheme to transform a derelict part of Conway Street.
Part of the parish-backed plan – to upgrade the public toilets, install a kiosk and construct office space at a cost of £900,000 – was approved by a parish assembly by 12 votes to eight last week.
In 2009, parishioners agreed to spend £500,000 to buy an adjoining building as part of the overall project.
However, Deputy Jackie Hilton, who voted against the proposal, said that she was concerned about the cost and the amount that would be recouped by the parish.
