New housing complex proposed in Guernsey

Baubigny Farm
The proposals include refurbishing a farmhouse, bungalow and two barns

A new housing complex of up to 10 homes could be built in Guernsey if planning permission is given.

The States Property Services wants to alter and refurbish a farmhouse and three other buildings in St Sampson. It also wants to build six new homes.

John Silvester, States chief property manager, said any funds raised from the sale would go into the States finances.

He said: "We paid nearly over £3m for the site and we're ready to sell the farm and recoup some of that money."

The Baubigny Farm property was purchased by the States to provide an access road to the St Sampson's High and Le Murier Schools, which opened in October 2008.
