Planning consent granted for three major houses in Jersey, designed by Robert Adam

Not just one but three major new houses have been given the go-ahead by the Jersey Planning Office on a landmark site in St Brelade, Jersey.

Robert Adam’s design for a coordinated group of three large classical houses in the Cod House tradition will replace the current undistinguished 20th Century buildings overlooking the Bay at ‘Windward’, St Brelade, Jersey.

Jersey businessman and site owner, Tom Scott, said: “These new houses will be of the highest architectural quality to satisfy the demands and opportunities of the site and to enhance the character of the Green Zone.”

Professor Robert Adam, Director at Robert Adam Architect said: “I am very pleased this project is going ahead. It has been a great chance to create fine classical houses in a superb location overlooking St Brelade’s Bay.”

The houses are all of a size appropriate to their surroundings.

Windward House and the other two properties on the site have been modified or built in an uncoordinated fashion and have become run down. This was seen as a wasted opportunity for an important landmark site and the new development as a chance to create three major houses as a proper group, considered together and maximising the amenity of each.
