Compulsorily land purchase

Post by GD on Fri 17 Dec 2010, 11:40 am

A FAMILY will be forced to sell land to the States as part of the airport runway project, if deputies agree.
The field owned by the Le Messurier family on Route de la Tourelle is wanted for improvements to the runway end safety areas it is the last piece of land needed for the project to go ahead.
Public Services wants the Assembly to agree to compulsorily purchase it for 36,265 after negotiations with the family failed.
Public Services minister Bernard Flouquet said it was very unfortunate that the issue had to be resolved in this way. (from GEP)
