Combination 5: Construct a new northern port for some freight and fuel

Share this page

This is the combination that is being recommended. The focus for development is an extensive new port facility at Longue Hougue South, to relocate some activities away from the current harbours, and reconfiguration of St Peter Port Harbour.

Future Harbour Development – Combination 5

Future Harbour Development – Combination 2

A new harbour would be constructed at Longue Hougue South for all bulk freight, bulk liquid, and lift-on/lift-off freight operations currently handled through St Peter Port or St Sampson's Harbour.

St Sampson's Harbour would then become an extended marina for leisure craft, with significant areas of land around Northside and Southside freed up for other uses. This would provide regeneration opportunities around the Bridge that could revitalise this area.

Current roll-on/roll-off freight and passenger services would remain in St Peter Port, but port operations would be rearranged to reduce conflict between commercial and non-commercial traffic, pedestrians and vehicles. This includes a new passenger terminal on North Beach, and a below ground multi-storey car park to replace any lost spaces and potentially relocate parking away from other areas of Town. The Cambridge Berth would also be released, freeing up valuable space for potential development. 

An area of 'the pool' in St Peter Port Harbour would also be available to offer more leisure marine facilities, providing some capacity for larger private boats and opportunities to expand the island's Blue Economy offering.

As with the other combinations, the current maintenance requirements for the existing infrastructure will be addressed. The cruise liner tender berth at St Peter Port Harbour could also be extended, to improve the visitor experience, with shorter queue times and better arrangements for embarkation and disembarkation.

Estimated costs

Total: £361 million
