Combination 6: Construct a new northern port for all freight, fuel and international passengers

Share this page

In this combination, the focus for development is an extensive new port facility at Longue Hougue South, to relocate almost all commercial freight and international passenger activities away from the current harbours.

Future Harbour Development – Combination 6

A new multi-function harbour would be constructed at Longue Hougue South for all freight, fuel, and passenger operations currently handled through St Peter Port or St Sampson's. The only exception would be inter-island passenger services, which will remain in St Peter Port. 

The new port would include a new passenger terminal.

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 opportunities for development around the Bridge that could revitalise this area.

The reduced commercial activity around the North Beach and White Rock would remove the current conflict with non-commercial traffic and pedestrians at St Peter Port Harbour. The Cambridge Berth and most of the New Jetty would be released, freeing up more valuable space for potential development. A large area of 'the pool' would also be available to improve facilities for the marine sector, 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: £354 million
