Andium Homes the "arms length" company that has taken over the role of social housing provider for Jersey Government has just refurbished a small block of two bedroom maisonettes at Clos de Sables, St Brelade
Originally built in the 1960s the block had major structural faults and Andium has made the building look better than it ever did - but the flats do not offer "lifetime homes" standards and at over £300 per week rent they are hardly "affordable" to many.
A few hundred metres away on the other side of Route Orange are some of the Island's more expensive private properties including the stylish 1930s Les Lumieres - alongside which a very large private dwelling is now being constructed.
So there is no shortage of money available in Jersey for new housing or to pay for old properties and this area of St Brelade could be further developed or redeveloped to provide many housing units. But who should enjoy them....
Here Deputy Tadier discusses some of the many and complex issues relating to this area and other matters that can apply across the Island
