Government is reminding Islanders that they will soon have the opportunity to contribute to the consultation on the incorporation of Ports of Jersey at a series of public meetings.
The consultation, which has been open since 29 May 2014 and is scheduled to close on 15 August 2014, has already received some responses, the majority of which have been positive. As well as commenting via email and post, Islanders are also being invited to submit their views and find out more about the Ports incorporation at a series of public meetings.
The public meetings will take place as follows:
1. Wednesday, 25 June 2014, Albert terminal (Gate 1), 7-9pm
2. Wednesday, 2 July 2014, Airport arrivals hall, 7-9pm
3. Wednesday 23 July 2014, Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society (Trinity), 7-9pm
4. Wednesday, 6 August 2014, Albert terminal (Gate 1), 7-9pm
Economic Development Minister, Senator Alan Maclean, said: “Ports of Jersey have done a tremendous amount of work in informing and engaging those likely to be directly affected by the incorporation, and I believe this is reflected in the responses that have been made to the consultation so far. I hope that everybody who has an interest in the incorporation of the ports will respond to the consultation so that their views can be taken into consideration.”
Ports of Jersey representatives will also be offering separate meetings to address specific elements of the incorporation that might be of interest to their business partners, clubs, associations or societies. Anybody interested in being involved in this should email Ports of Jersey at firstname.lastname@example.org
