Jersey 'Ker du Pons' building plan given approval

Plans to replace a house in St Brelade with four flats and two houses have been approved by the planning department.

The Ker du Pons application was originally opposed by residents as well as the National Trust for Jersey.

The scheme at Mont du Petit Port was passed by the planning applications panel.

Isobel Nurse, who chaired a group of neighbours opposing the plans, said she was disappointed with the decision.

She said she believed the plans would ruin the landscape

The architect for the project, Mike Waddington, said he was pleased with the outcome and the new development would benefit the environment.
