Just before Christmas, on a very cold, wet, December morning, I met with the Minister for Infrastructure and some Constituents where we walked along the seafront between Le Hurel and Seymour slips. We were there to look at the sea wall, the sea defences and some of the encroachments to the Foreshore and to consider how it can be restored.
The proposition I took to the previous States Assembly needs to be settled and the policy and sentiments therein acted on. The dilemma has to also be balanced with an earlier meeting I had with the same Minister, along with two other Constituents who had suffered some very heavy handed treatment and ‘fines’ issued by the States for encroachment, which I continue to pursue to have put right. Fortunately the new Infrastructure Minister is on another page to the last one and I am therefore more hopeful that progress, at last, will be made to find a fair and equitable solution for the public.
