Clearance marks first step in Fort Regent revamp
Updated: Dec 27, 2021
Work will start "in the next couple of weeks" to remove dead trees and old roots from Fort Regent ahead of plans to revamp the site.
Jersey's government said workers would also clear the eastern moat and old rose garden to make way for a new garden, walkway and viewing spaces. The work is being done in preparation for the Future Fort scheme, external.
An ecology team will look after and rehome any wildlife affected, said Jersey's government. The Future Fort plans, which include a 2,000 seat venue, bowling alley and a multi-screen cinema, are expected to take up to eight years to complete and in two phases.
