More than 100,000 tonnes of waste is generated each year by local construction and demolition activity, excavations, and roads maintenance – and the island has to get rid of this so-called 'inert' waste.
An extension of the current land reclamation site at Longue Hougue, known as ‘Longue Hougue South’ (LHS) is being considered for the management of inert waste. A study of the potential environmental impacts will start shortly.
In the meantime, Trading Assets, the States body responsible for this, is offering to explain to Vale parishioners in more detail why LHS, pictured above, is its preferred option for disposal.
If you would like to find out more about what the assessment will include and the next steps, Trading Assets will be holding two public drop-in sessions. Members of the project team will be on hand to answer any questions. More information on the project is available here.
The drop-ins themselves will be held on:
Friday 1st March from 2pm to 7pm at the Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts
Saturday 2nd March from 10am to 4pm at Beau Sejour Concourse
