Deputy Eddie Noel said that having obtained planning permission for the new £40-million school, the project team was now finalising the acquisition of the new site in fields along Route de Quennevais and had started the procurement process for a main contractor.
He added that once these stages had concluded, a more definite timeline for the completion of the new school and the vacation of the current site would be drawn up.
‘Proposals for the future use of the existing school site will then be developed in conjunction with the planning authority and shared publicly,’ Deputy Noel said in response to a question from Deputy Montfort Tadier in the States. The department and I welcome hearing the views of the parish authority and the public, and, in particular, those in the immediate vicinity of the existing school site, on any proposals brought forward.’
The minister added that his department would look at the best options for the site and said that the creation of a parish administrative facility had previously been suggested. However, he added that the site was also suitable for a residential development, which he said would be in keeping with the
