An application has been submitted to give the L'Ancresse sea wall 'listed status'.
Before the States voted to remove part of the wall, the Vale Commons Council in Guernsey put in an application to make it a listed structure, it has been revealed.
The council oversee the area of the L'Ancresse Common.
President of the Vale Commons Council, Peter Blake, said it was agreed the wall "needed to be preserved", echoing the thoughts of protesters against the removal.
The application is being considered by the States.
