YOUR PETITIONERS humbly pray that the States may be pleased to resolve:

1. To agree in principle that, in place of the proposed extension and development of the Longue Hougue South site, the preferred option for the disposal of inert waste (once the current Reclamation Site has reached full capacity) should be a redevelopment of St Peter Port Harbour in phases, which may include:

     (a) Phase 1: For a period of approximately four years, the creation of an initial bunded area and infill, to create an anchor point for a potential jetty (Phase 2) of up to 160 metres ( or such other length or depth as STSB and the Harbour Master could consider to be a useful size); and

     (b) Phase 3: To consider an extended inert waste facility subject to the further consultation and investigation proposed in Propositions 3 and 4, over an estimated period of around 10-15 years;

With such adjustments to this design as may be considered appropriate further to the research and consultation proposed in Propositions 3 and 4 below;

2. To note that such a development remains consistent with the States' strategy for inert waste, which "includes provision of future on-island facilities for residual inert waste, through means of either on-island coastal land reclamation or quarry infill", that it reflects the objectives of the 2013 Ports Master Plan, and that it could enhance significantly the work of the Seafront Enhancement Area ('SEA') Group;

3. To direct the States Trading Supervisory Board ('STSB') to develop detailed plans for a phased development of the St Peter Port Harbour using the Island's inert waste, as set out in Proposition 1, exploring in particular:
    
     (a) The creation of a jetty of 160 metres (or such other length or depth as STSB and the Harbour Master may judge to be useful) and any strategic advantages this might create for Guernsey, including opportunities to reorganise the existing Harbour site, e.g. by moving the ro-ro ramps to the new jetty;

     (b) The creation of an extended Restricted Zone at the Harbour and its uses;

     (c) Significant opportunities to improve current freight and security issues; 

     (d) Extensive opportunities to improve general harbour operations;

     (e) Practical opportunities to improve accessibility in and around the Harbour;

and
     
      (f) Genuine opportunities to use areas in and around the Harbour differently, to the benefit of Guernsey's economy, by supporting the marine and/or tourism trade;

4. To direct STSB to consult widely on such plans, including with relevant Committees of the States, the SEA Group, the Harbour Master, St Peter Port Harbour user groups, including logistics and ferry companies, business groups, and other relevant parties, to establish the benefits and disadvantages of the proposals;

5. To direct STSB to consult with the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure, the Development & Planning Authority, and any other relevant parties, to consider how best these proposals can be progressed as a medium- to long-term solution for inert waste disposal, which should include:
    
     (a) Exploring any requirements for temporary storage or disposal of inert waste which may arise while these plans are being developed, or in between phases of the proposed Harbour development;

6. To direct STSB and, as appropriate, the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure to report to the States, at the same time as the forthcoming Inert Waste Strategy Policy Letter, with a complementary report entitled "St Peter Port Harbour Development" that includes a benchmarking report, timelines, costs, and a full business plan, no later than the end of December 2019; and

7. To direct the Policy & Resources Committee to make available to STSB the resources necessary to complete the additional investigations and policy work required to facilitate this.

To delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure on any Environmental Impact Analysis and Business analysis.

To direct Policy and Resources to make available any extra resources to STSB for any work required by the Harbour Master in his investigations and considerations for the extension of the Restricted Zone which may include variations of Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 as described in 1(a) and 1(b)
