Guernsey deputies support removal of 'eyesore' hotel

Post by GD on Mon 28 May 2012, 6:25 pm

Three deputies for Guernsey's Castel parish have welcomed plans to demolish a disused hotel on its west coast.

Carterets Developments Limited has applied to erect a block of 12 three-storey apartments on the site of the former Hotel des Carterets at Cobo.

Deputy Sandra James said: "It's been an absolute eyesore at Cobo for too long."

Deputies Jonathan Le Tocq and Hunter Adam said they were happy to see the hotel building go, although the former expressed caution about the new build.

Referring to the size of the proposed development, Deputy Le Tocq said: "It's not ideal but it is better than what we've got.

"We can't leave eyesores like that undeveloped just because we don't like what developers might like to be doing there," he said.

Deputy Adam said the site needed redevelopment.

"The hotel needs knocking down. I agree with that completely," he said.

The spokesman appointed by the developers was unavailable for comment.

Planners at the Environment Department will vote on the proposals at an open meeting.

However a spokesperson for the department was unable to identify the date on which that meeting would take place.

Oh no ? What about the Idle Rocks ? That is a real eye sore, right next to a tourist spot.

Could 12 three storey apartments be the reason it has been left to be an eyesore. The comment about it is not ideal but it is better than what we have got says it all for me. Leave it be then when it falls down get the owners to remove it and develop something suitable on site. Twelve three storey apartments is a money spinner for the developers and will look out of place on the sea front. Get them to put in some decent looking houses instead.

If they don't like eyesores - they could start in Town (the place that most visitors get to see) before I left I could not go up Fountain Street to the Bordage because going through the slum area was really depressing)!! it showed up the true state of Guernsey's 'Jewel in the Crown' and NOT in a good light!!

i totally agree about the idlerocks..it has been standing empty for about 10 years now..i believe it has changed owners several times in ten years..my guess is it will never be a hotel again as the owners wont do anything about it if they dont get permission for expensive apartments to be built there x
