Combination 7: Extend St Peter Port Harbour eastwards and construct a new northern port for some freight and fuel

Share this page

The combination would involve creating new port facilities both east of the QEII Marina and at Longue Hougue South, to enable freight operations to be relocated away from the current harbours.

Future Harbour Development - Combination 3

Future Harbour Development – Combination 5

The new harbour at St Peter Port would accommodate roll-on/roll-off freight and passenger operations, including a new terminal.

All liquid fuel and bulk cargo would move from St Sampson's Harbour to a new facility at Longue Hougue South, along with lift-on/lift-off freight operations from St Peter Port. 

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.

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: £706 million
