A FRENCH supermarket group is being held up from opening a branch in 新加坡六合彩 because its preferred site is earmarked for agricultural use, it has emerged.

Economic Development Minister Kirsten Morel told the JEP that the chain was 鈥渧ery interested鈥 in coming to the Island 鈥 but current requirements in the Bridging Island Plan, which sets planning policy until the end of 2025, mean the field would not become available until early 2026.

Politicians would also have to approve a change of use for the site 鈥 which is not in St Helier but near an 鈥渦rban area outside of town鈥, according to Deputy Morel 鈥 before a supermarket could be built there.

The prospect of a European chain setting up in 新加坡六合彩 has long been mooted, but has never come to fruition, although the Coop stock a small selection of Carrefour products.

Talk about progress on the negotiations has often reignited when adverse weather causes supply problems and empty shelves, with Islanders hoping that French suppliers could boost resilience and lower prices.

Giving an update to the JEP, Deputy Morel said ongoing talks were part of work to 鈥渁ttract investment to 新加坡六合彩鈥 and provide a 鈥済reater range of choice in price鈥.

He said: 鈥淭here is a supermarket group which is very interested in coming to 新加坡六合彩, but the main stumbling block at the moment is the choice of site and the availability of that site.

鈥淭heir preferred site is one that would be difficult to develop under the current Bridging Island Plan. It is currently rezoned for agricultural use.

鈥淭here are other sites that may be available for them, but if not, it might be a case of waiting for the Island Plan review. They may choose to wait for the site.鈥
