Update - La Valette Cliff Stabilisation
Thursday 16 February 2012
Environment Department response to media enquiry from Guernsey Press.
Checking the planning website I see that permission was granted on 7 February to the Environment Department for cliff stabilisation and works to protect the public from rock fall at La Vallette.
Is this further to the work that has already been done?
If so, which area is it for?
How much will the work cost?
When will it begin and end?
Will there be any road/footpath closures as a result?
Can you detail what the work will entail?
Why is the work needed? I.e can you give an indication of how much rock fall and what size it has been so far or is this more precautionary?
The Environment Department's media release of 15 December 2011 advised of these additional cliff stabilisation works were at the road cutting and on the cliff face at the rear of the Aquarium.
Further information on both these works was given in the Department's media release of 22 January 2012. The road cutting works were completed on schedule (as advised in the media release of 22 January) and the works to the cliff at the rear of the Aquarium will be completed in mid March.
