Thank you for your interest in the future of the three St Peter Port Regeneration Areas: Lower Pollet, South Esplanade and Mignot Plateau, and Mansell Street/Le Bordage

The Development and Planning Authority appointed Tibbalds and a team of consultants to create the Development Framework for the three St Peter Port Regeneration Areas, as identified within the Island Development Plan 2016:
  • Lower Pollet;
  • South Esplanade and Mignot Plateau; and
  • Mansell Street / Le Bordage.
The purpose of the Development Framework is to set out the issues and opportunities for each Regeneration Area, and to ensure that future schemes are well-planned and provide maximum benefit for local people and St Peter Port as a whole.

The Development Framework has now been approved by the Development and Planning Authority. You can download the document here or through here.

Role and purpose of the Development Framework

The role and purpose of this Development Framework is to provide planning guidance for the three identified Regeneration Areas within St Peter Port. These areas are 
  • Lower Pollet, to the north of the main centre,
  • South Esplanade and Mignot Plateau to the south of the main centre, and
  • Mansell Street/Le Bordage, including Trinity Square to the south west of the main centre 
The Development Framework sets out a vision and guidance for each of these areas and also what they have in common and can contribute together as three key areas on the edge of the main centre.

The primary objective of this work is to deliver positive regeneration and to drive investment so that St Peter Port continues to be a vibrant and attractive place to work, live, visit and spend time. 

The three areas are presented together in one document to emphasise their common roles as part of St Peter Port and to create a coherent strategy which celebrates the special character of each. 

The Development Framework sets out key development opportunities for sites, spaces and the public realm and sets both an area specific vision for what can be achieved and guidance on how each should be considered as part of any future proposals. 

Any schemes coming forward in these three Regeneration Areas will be expected to accord with the guidance in the Development Framework and to consider carefully how it supports the long term growth and sustainability of Town.

Structure of the Development Framework

The report is structured into five sections that starts with an introduction and analysis, then covers town-wide issues and finally sets out the three Regeneration Areas in more detail.

The second part of the report, called Section B, proposes a Vision and Objectives for the combined St Peter Port Regeneration Areas which builds on the 2013 Vision document prepared for St Peter Port as a whole, and in this case with a focus on the opportunities within the Regeneration Areas themselves.

Sections C, D and E focus on the individual Regeneration Areas including a focused Vision and set of Objectives, as well as a number of Development Guidelines including concept sketches, or initial ideas, for the key development opportunities. These are not final proposals but illustrate ideas for potential schemes that could make positive change in each area.

Any proposals would need to go through a full design development and viability process before being implemented.
