Work begins at Salt Pans data park
Monday 7th January 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
WHILE some Saltpans residents are pleased to see signs of progress at the Guernsey Data Park site others still have concerns about the impact the development might have.
The Longport Group has started to move ground and rubble around the large St Sampson’s site and on Friday a crane was used to lift more containers onto the land.
Those overlooking the site from their homes along Saltpans Road said progress so far had been slow but hoped work would now get quicker.
‘I have lived here for four years now and since then it has just been a mess,’ said Dave Goupillot, 65. ‘The sooner they do something the better. I’d rather see something being done than see what is there now.’
John and Margaret Helyer, who have lived at their Saltpans home for 40 years, said they still had concerns about the data park.
