Tourgis plans not passed yet

Posted Fri 11th June 2010 at 14:15

Dutch developers Verweij en Partners (VP) have not yet been given planning permission to turn Fort Tourgis into a hotel and conference centre.

A report in today's Alderney Press said VP's plans had been approved by the States. However, The Journal can confirm this is incorrect.

Speaking on Thursday, VP architect Marianne Mollema said planning permission had not yet been granted. However, she did say she was "confident" her company's ambitious scheme would be given the green light in the coming days.

Ms Mollema said: "I know it [the planning application] was talked about yesterday but I have not heard any results yet.

"I don't expect any problems though. I am confident everything will be OK."

Ms Mollema said she may return to the island next month with VP managing director Frans Verweij.

"I'm not sure when we will come back. We might come in July, or maybe after the holidays. Businesses in Holland close during August, so I don't know if we'll come before August or after - it will depend on other projects."

Speaking today, States chief executive Roy Burke said the planning process had not yet been completed and that VP had not been granted planning permission.

The Journal understands that members of the Building and Development Control Committee want to ask VP several questions before building permission is given.
