Like it or not,loath the idea as much as you want,and scream all your protests out to the skies above,but one day(maybe not in our life time),the harbour extension and the filling in of Belle Greve Bay will happen,out of SHEER NEED.Anyone noticed the chaos now down at St peter port harbour areas when ferries and freight vessels are moored up? (and the crazy traffic jams along the sea front?) well i have,and i collect and deliver freight at the harbour,its called LACK OF SPACE,and can sometimes be dangerous.The slightest "wiff" of an idea recently to cut down on north beach parking,brought out loads of protests,fine, but don't just protest come out with positive solutions to a problem which is gauranteed to get worse, and if our island continues to grow in the way it is,then we are going to need more and more space,for all different requirements,and stop buring our heads in the sand about it.Just look at the choatic embarrassing scenes with the massive Cruise liners last year with visitors trailing all along the sea front,like it or not Cruise liners are here(and we should be proud of it) and for those of you who think they are a waste of time,have the guts to stand on the sea wall with a banner reading,"go away cruise liners",and like this or not,compared with Jersey,our island has allways "played" at tourism in an amateurish way. Yes,it's going to cost an absolute fortune to develope st.Peter Port harbour,so we better start saving now,and with proper carefull thinking(which our autorities have a terrible past record),then the project can be something to be proud of,as is not the case with the disgusting north beach parking area.Like wise when the descision finaly goes ahead in the years to come to develope Belle Greve(and it will),there will be a golden opportunity to create the most fantastic enviromently friendly outlook,without spoiling the views towards the east,and with minimum threat to sea life,both Belgrave and the harbour extension just need the right people and planning (with a public exibition of the developements) to get these two projects developed correctly.Wish i will be alive to see it happen!
