Press Release - Marina project shelved

For immediate release: 25th January 2016

The Policy & Finance Committee of the States of Alderney has resolved to terminate its 'exclusivity agreement' with Alderney Development Ltd (ADL), the developer behind the proposal to construct a marina in Maggie's Bay. This results from ADL's concerns about the perceived negative impact on the project arising from uncertainty surrounding the States of Guernsey's programme to maintain the Alderney Breakwater. Due to the lack of any definitive timescale from the States of Guernsey about its intentions the Committee took the decision to terminate rather than extend the agreement.


The Alderney Breakwater is owned by the States of Guernsey, following its transfer from the UK Government in 1987. The maintenance of the Breakwater was taken on by the States of Guernsey as its contribution towards the costs of national defence and international representation.
