Together we can deliver a sustainable, community-led development!


The Channel Islands Co-operative Society Limited (the Coop) has submitted an application for outline planning consent to develop the Leale's Yard site near The Bridge in St Sampson and the Vale.

At present, the site is 13 acres of unused space that has massive potential to assist with helping the Island's community and fulfilling the Island's needs. When it is developed, the site will deliver much-needed affordable housing, shopper and residents carparking, as well as business and employment opportunities for the Island as a whole. The plans also feature vital infrastructure enhancements required in the area, such as roads, pavements, street lights, flood defences, drainage and other incoming services.

The Coop's plans support the States of Guernsey's wider regeneration of The Bridge and act as a catalyst for further investment in the new Harbour Action Area. The development will provide new affordable housing and social community spaces, complimenting many of the States' strategic priorities for new developments and their own Guernsey Work Plan.  Finally, many of the States of Guernsey's healthy lifestyle, low carbon and social value agendas have been considered in the plans thanks to the attention to detail being given to sustainable construction, civic spaces and communal areas in the proposed designs.

All of these benefits will be achieved with significant private-sector financial investment, and the use of local companies and labour to build and maintain the completed development. The Coop has appointed JW Rihoy and Sons to act as the Development Partner, and several other local firms to lead on the principal design and project management activities.

The Coop and our Development Partner are already focusing on the delivery phase, with a targeted completion of the first homes and new buildings within three years of the required approvals, and five years for all of the development.
