The Seafront Enhancement Area ("SEA") programme is a States of Guernsey policy priority, concerned with producing a plan that best aligns multiple existing States of Guernsey priorities and work streams to provide one, consolidated plan for the enhancement of Guernsey's east coast.
The vision of the SEA programme is:
"To position Guernsey's east coast as a world class maritime location, thereby enhancing the socio-economic wellbeing of Guernsey as a whole."
It is recognised that this work will have to take into consideration a number of States' strategies and will require input from a number of different stakeholders including the third and private sectors. The work will culminate in the production of a long-term development strategy, which will inform the development of a Local Planning Brief for the St Peter Port and St Sampson's Harbour Action Areas.
Following stakeholder consultation in early 2019, the SEA Steering Group identified a number of statements of intent. These statements of intent were derived from the opinions and suggestions that came out of this consultation, and identify a number of areas that stakeholders believed should be a priority of the SEA programme and should be investigated further. These include:
- Leisure boats
- Natural environment
- Coastal defences
