We have a responsibility to protect our island for future generations

What's this about?

This is a not for profit, evidence-based, website created to provide islanders with the reasons why the proposed extension of La Gigoulande quarry is unnecessary and not in Jersey’s best interests.

Mineral extraction from an agricultural field in the countryside of St Mary is not the solution to affordable housing however, with an estimated value of £15m, expansion into field MY966 would be of considerable financial benefit to its UK owners.

We propose the the Islands’ Aggregate & Mineral Strategy is thoroughly reviewed before this is debated and any proposal for expansion should be withdrawn from the Draft Bridging Island Plan (DBIP).
