Following advice from Planning at the time of the latest refusal in May, Janvrin Holdings have submitted plans for three three-bedroom houses and one two-bedroom house.Two months ago an appeal against a refusal to permit four three-bedroom homes on the site was turned down, with the advice that four houses might be acceptable within a development of a similar scale, layout and form to what had been there before.Janvrin’s Farm has made headline news on many occasions since March 2000, when bulldozers moved in unannounced to raze the 17th-century traditional Jersey granite farmhouse to the ground.The demolition caused a public outcry and saw property developer David Sheppard brought before the Royal Court charged with breaking the Planning Law.
In July 2001 he was found guilty and fined £150,000.
However, the conviction was subsequently overturned on a split decision by the Court of Appeal.The first planning application, for eight two-bedroom flats, was submitted in the summer of 2000 and turned down a year later.
In May 2001 Planning refused permission for five three-bedroom dwellings.
Both applications were considered to be inappropriate over-developments of the site.
