Waterfront Follies

It is intriguing to see the way the new States is starting to shape up on Simon Crowcroft's proposition on the Waterfront.

Part A, on the halting the Hopkins Masterplan (refined, distilled by 25%) site, failed, as well it might now the sunken road has vanished from the equation. I wouldn't have supported that part of the proposition. As long as the Masterplan included a sunken road - maintenance of 1/2 million per annum by the States, don't forget, I would have been 100% against what seemed an act of political and economic suicide. Now that's not there, what remains, which retains car parking as well, is far more palatable.

Part B, on pausing the La Folie Inn Development, was passed, but by 26 to 21. Clearly there's some of the old "Web" spirit there. It will be interesting to see the debate and what was actually said. These were the votes
