Support gathers for holistic approach to North's traffic issues

Tue 04 Aug 2020

There has been a positive reaction to calls by the Vale Douzaine for a joined up approach to be taken to traffic issues in the North of the island. The plea for a holistic view by planners has now been picked up by the island's media.

Senior Constable Richard Leale said earlier [available here] that Planners needed a traffic impact assessment for the whole of the North, not just for the individual sites building permission had been granted on.

BBC Radio Guernsey and the Guernsey Press both today reported on the initiative and Junior Constable Bill Cohu (above) was also interviewed about the issue.

Parishioners have also used the parish's Facebook page to comment on the call. One resident said: "Agree completely with all. Please stop ruining the North of the Island, it's soul destroying for those of us who live down here. The DPA have no idea. We must stand up for retaining our greenfield sites and wildlife habitats."

A meeting has been arranged with Development and Planning Authority president Deputy Dawn Tindall and the douzaine is grateful that she has agreed to meet parish representatives to discuss some of the issues that have arisen.

An update will be provided after the meeting has taken place.
