Line in the Sand, St Ouen, October 4th 2009

Spent the afternoon at the "Line in the Sand"

"Keeping Jersey 'special' has never been easy or indeed always possible. Currently there is a tangible groundswell of public unease at the marked changes to the character of much of our coastline, changes that are leaving Islanders with a genuine sense of concern."

"A Line in the Sand provides a positive channel for this concern. The principal aim is to provide Islanders with a simple opportunity to actively and visibly show their support for the safeguarding of Jersey's superb coastline. The idea is to form a human chain along the beach at St Ouen stretching from Le Braye towards L'Etacq."

The Societe Jersiaise fully supports the campaign of the National Trust for Jersey to secure permanent protection for the Island’s coastline.

And after the storm - notice the "footprint"

Page 57 of the Island Plan 2005

"It is recommended that the whole area of Jersey's offshore reefs should have the highest level of protection with a presumption against any new development. The Islands are included within the marine protection zone and have been approved as Ramsar sites."

"The only building work that should be permitted is the sensitive repair and restoration of the existing architectural resources and even this will require strict conditions to ensure that the work does not have an adverse environmental impact......"

And a recent States statement on seabird protection:

"The Assistant Minister for Planning and Environment, Deputy Rob Duhamel, said: “Initiatives such as the Seabird Protection Zones are important as they assist in protecting certain species that are under pressure and give them a better chance of remaining a common sight around our coasts for this and future generations.”

"The bird species in this area are sensitive to disturbance and need to be treated with
respect and understanding."
