Proposals to install a low-energy lighting system on the tower at First Tower have been suggested, with LED lights that can change colours depending on the occasion.
The First Tower Community Association says that the project, if given approval, would complement the surrounding area, including the garden next to the tower.
The scheme is being backed by St Helier Deputy Andrew Lewis as a way to ‘bring the tower back to life’.
He said: ‘This ancient monument has been somewhat neglected for many years. It is the gateway to both the community of First Tower and St Helier. Thousands of people walk or drive pass it without always noticing it is there.
‘Our plan is to bring the tower back to life with light and colour.’
As well as the lighting, the proposals also include plans for an information board next to the tower.
Ted Vibert, chairman of the community association said: ‘This is a great community initiative that not only brightens up the area but also regenerates one of the Island’s many towers, emphasising their historic significance.’
The project is subject to planning permission and the agreement of the Historic Buildings Officer.
