About this guidance
This supplementary planning guidance deals with how the character of St Helier can be maintained and enhanced through the implementation of the bridging Island Plan when decisions are made about planning applications.
It should be used to assess all development in St Helier, where it is covered by the guidance, specifically to assist with the interpretation and application of Bridging Island Plan policies:
- SP3: Placemaking Policy
- PL1: Development in Town Policy
- GD6: Design quality
- GD9: Skyline, views and vistas and Policy
- GD7: Tall buildings
The guidance is based on the St Helier Urban Character Appraisal Review: 2021 which has updated the original St Helier Urban Character Appraisal (2005).
It supersedes and replaces the supplementary planning guidance advice note Design Guidance for St. Helier (2013).
