Jersey's Planning Minister is keen to progress with the north of town negotiations.
Deputy Rob Duhamel's move comes after discussions between the Planning Department and the developer, Le Masurier, broke down last week.
Le Masurier said they had lost confidence in the Planning process following what they viewed as delays and indecision over their application to regenerate part of St Helier.
They wanted to build shops, cafes and up to 200 flats and houses, but have - at least temporarily - scrapped their proposal.
Now, Deputy Duhamel says an updated development brief for the Bath Street site has been forwarded to Le Masurier for their comment.
He hopes that may rekindle the deal and is urging the team from Le Masurier to get back around the table for further discussions.
