Vinery site use to be monitored

Post by GD on Mon 28 Apr 2008, 8:30 pm

Guernsey's States Property Services office says it is going to work to ensure tenants at the Fontaine Vinery Site do not break their contracts.
The States leases out the land to light industry but sets down strict rules on it being only used for storage of vehicles and equipment.
Nearby residents have complained about vehicles being driven at anti-social hours and other work.
States Property Services said it had already talked to several tenants.
John Silvester, head of estates management at States Property Services, said the office knew there had been unacceptable uses of the site and that the matter was being dealt with.
He added that the land was only temporarily leased for light industrial use.
He said: "These are just storage compounds. They have been set up here on a temporary basis for three years.
"There is 16 months left on that permission before it runs out."

mmm that word temporary its a word that seems to last a long time under the States

The one factor I took from this rather autocratic press release was that it sums up the total arrogance of the last House’s attitude who did not give a toss about small local businesses and the sooner the new House gets sworn in the better. I understand that there are small local businesses which have moved out of the old Leal’s yard and are facing ruin because they have no alternative light industrial site so they can relocate.



I hope the new Ministers for Environment & C&E will learn form the horrendous lack of consultation, arrogance and down right neglect shown towards the needs of our small local ‘bread and butter’ firms by these two States Departments and provide the much needed small light industrial sites. We build monstrous banks, mind boggling extensions on churches (just look at the appalling extension put on Trinity church) all are totally out of congress with the surroundings and yet we can not provide much needed sites for small businesses which face ruin by permitting a change of use. Madness, utter madness!!!

Digger, I stand and give you a round of applause. I do truly hope that the new House is a breath of fresh air for small local businesses because they deserve all the support they can get and your post proves this. For those who bang on about how the finance industry is the 'be all and end all' of everything that is good in the island then take a hard long look and ask why that particular industry can throw up monstrous buildings and our bread and butter local business could not erect an outside loo...
