PLANS to demolish a physiotherapy clinic in St Saviour and convert it into houses have been lodged for a third time.

The updated proposals include replacing Reaction Physiotherapy Clinic, near Bon Air Lane, with two three-bedroom homes. The application was submitted by Judith de Carteret, with architect and design consultancy J Design Limited acting as agents.

Under plans set out in a previous application, it was proposed that a three- and four-bedroom house be built at the site. That scheme was rejected by the Planning Committee.

A letter addressed to the Infrastructure, Housing and Environment Department that forms part of the latest application says: ‘Having taken due account of the comments made by the members of the committee and objectors our client has instructed us to amend this scheme to provide two traditionally styled three-bedroom dwellings similar to the house now called Mon Tresor which was recently constructed to the west of the Reaction Physiotherapy building.

‘This revised design will overcome the anticipated reasons for refusal regarding the proposed design and appearance, the mass of the buildings/over-development and overlooking issues.

‘The reduced footprint of the buildings on the site will also allow for larger gardens and a greater distance to the site boundaries.’

Ms de Carteret previously said that the existing building was not fit for purpose, and it was not economically viable to upgrade it. She added that she had attempted to both rent out and sell the property without success.
