Environmentalist warns over Belle Greve deep-water berth
Friday 8th February 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
BELLE GREVE is a unique and wonderful habitat for wildlife and any development needs to be careful not to damage it, environmentalist Vic Froome has warned.
The RSPB communications officer said that although the east coast bay was not often seen as a thriving wildlife spot, species such a worms, limpets and an array of birds could be found in the area.
Public Services identified a deep-water berth off Belle Greve as a priority in its ports master plan.
It suggested the infrastructure – running south from Longue Hougue for cargo and fuel at a cost of between £71m. and £143m. – would benefit future fuel imports.
Mr Froome said that, although he had not looked at the plans in detail, work must be carefully considered.
