Given the high profile debate on Education Sport and Culture's proposals for the future of secondary education in the island, Vale parishioners might be wondering why there has been no comment from their own Douzaine, particularly on the traffic issues raised.

Senior Constable Richard Leale said that the Douzaine is not meeting formally until next Monday (the 27th) and while he was aware some members had views on the proposals, it would not have been helpful for him to comment – and possibly preempt – any decision that might be reached.

He added that the Douzaine also had two new member and colleagues would wish to hear their comments at what would be their first Douzaine attendance.

"After our meeting on the 27th the Constables will make comment according to the wishes of the Douzaine," he said.

  • A public meeting called by St Sampson's Douzaine last Wednesday attracted around 300 people and focused on infrastructure and traffic issues.

  • An additional public drop-in session is being held by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture to give islanders the chance to review plans for the two college sites prior to the deadline for submissions to the planning application. Senior staff, both educationalists and officers leading on infrastructure changes, plus Committee members will attend to answer questions. The drop-in will be held at Beau Sejour between 4pm-8pm on Monday 20th January.
