June 20th, 2011 by Deputy Dave Jones

News on 17th June 2010 that Guernsey airport contractors are to take over the Longue Hougue Reclamation site for an accommodation block and the storing of thousands of tonnes of material for the Airport contract has I believe severe ramifications for any future major industrial recycling initiatives.

The solid waste issue is a classic victim of the States’ endemic inability to take decisive action

December 20th, 2010 by Peter Roffey

I usually tend to feel that Deputy David De L’Isle protests rather too much over the Public Services Department’s handling of the island’s waste problem. It seems like a quiet news month when the former Environment Minister hasn’t called for the whole board of PSD to resign over the issue at least once. However there’s […]

Public Consultation and the development of an effective solid waste strategy

September 26th, 2010 by Peter Roffey

What should our tax strategy be? Or our waste strategy? Should new building go in the urban area or be spread around the island? Should bonfires be banned? The Guernsey public is being consulted almost weekly on decisions – big and small – facing the States of Deliberation. In many ways that is a very […]
