CGi supports bid to extend St Peter Port Harbour for inert waste

THE Confederation of Guernsey Industry fully supports Deputy Inder’s requete to extend St Peter Port Harbour as an alternative to the site at Longue Hougue. The proposed amendment has purpose and offers economically beneficial outcomes and opportunities for the island rather than Longue Hougue, which has no plan and just incurs expense.

We were involved in the initial public consultation on the future of inert waste two years ago, and our view then is similar to today – any major expenditure project has to offer significant benefits to Guernsey which Deputy’s Inder’s clearly does.

This proposal also has been put forward to the Waterfront working party and is supported by the commercial companies involved.
