Plemont – 6th December 2012

On December 6, 2012, in The Environment, by Lyndon-Farnham

Thank you all for taking the time to contact me with your views about Plemont.

I feel that I have to say that I am reluctantly leaning towards supporting the purchase of the Plemont Headland. I say reluctantly because of the potential costs involved. In my opinion, the environmental argument for protecting the area is unassailable. The financial argument is not so strong but, if the States could release funds from the sale of unused land or property (for the development of housing) then it may well prove far-sighted to invest this money in the purchase of Plemont.

Quite simply, one must evaluate the cost of purchasing Plemont with the value of owning and protecting this small piece of our island forever.

As all of you who contacted me have expressed strong feelings either for or against, it would be impossible to placate everybody. Nevertheless, please be assured that I will continue to give the matter a great deal of thought and deliberation up to and throughout the forthcoming debate.
