Pedestrianising the seafront, an underground car park on North Beach and an underpass at the Town Church Courtesy Crossing were all suggestions mooted at a public meeting last night which focused on the future of St Peter Port’s historic seafront.
The event was organised as part of a wider consultation about the area.
Around 50 islanders turned out to the event, including parish officials, representatives of business, political pressure groups and deputies.
Alex Fuller, Chairman of the Fuller Group, said:
Many of the attendees expressed a degree of cynicism over whether the changes discussed at the meeting would happen, but the overall mood afterwards was positive amongst the guests.
Many of the people at the meeting said afterwards they felt the consultation was a good idea and handled well by the States during the evening.
Guernsey’s Chief Minister Jonathan Le Tocq said:
It’s expected there will be another event similar to this one early next year, although the date has not been confirmed.
