Housing plans for former quarry

Plans have been put forward to build more than 200 flats on the old Westmount Quarry site in St Helier.

The proposal, by building firm Dandra, includes a nursing home, sheltered accommodation for over-50s and a children's nursery.

Residents of St Helier voted at a parish assembly to approve the plans, which would also see the quarry face re-stabilised.

The scheme is now being considered by Jersey's planning authorities.

As well as private housing there will be space for businesses, including art studios.

The site will also feature parking for 208 cars.
