Proposition Reference Article Billet d’État
P.2022/90 Amendment 6 Burford/Soulsby 3 XXII


Policy & Resources Committee


To delete all the propositions and substitute therefor: 1. To agree to (i) rescind Resolutions 1-3 made on 31st January 2019 on Article 2 on Billet d’État No. 1 of 2019 (P.2018/138); (ii) approve Option C+, as set out in this policy letter; (iii) replace the previously agreed scheme for Alderney Airport in the Government Work Plan with the Option C+ scheme, and (iv) direct the Policy & Resources Committee on behalf of the States of Guernsey to negotiate with the Policy & Finance Committee of the States of Alderney in order to update the operational relationship and secure capital funding for the Option C+ scheme to redevelop Alderney Airport and runway; and if a reasonable and robust agreement cannot be reached, to direct that the Policy & Resources Committee reverts to the States of Guernsey for further consideration of options to secure funding for Option C+; all provided that the States shall first have resolved not to extend the runway at Guernsey Airport pursuant to their Resolutions of 28th November 2019 on Article X on Billet d’État No. XXIII of 2019 (P.2019/105) which require Propositions in relation to the length of Guernsey’s runway to be presented to the States; and to direct the Committee for Economic Development to submit those propositions to the States in order that they may be debated at or before the March 2023 meeting; and, if the States resolve to progress an extension of Guernsey’s runway, to direct the States’ Trading Supervisory Board instead to arrange for the works under Option A to be carried out, as set out in this policy letter; Or, only if Proposition 1 shall have been defeated: 2. To approve Option A, as set out in this policy letter, to refurbish and maintain proportionate infrastructure at Alderney Airport with the minimum works required to support ongoing Code B aircraft operations with some safeguarding for a future extension where there is little or no impact on cost; and to direct the States’ Trading Supervisory Board to arrange for those works to be carried out; And 3. If Option A is progressed (either under proposition 1 or 2), to direct the Policy & Resources Committee and the Committee for Economic Development to undertake investigations into the feasibility of re-establishing an inter-island route network between Guernsey, Jersey and Alderney as well as between Alderney and Southampton, with all such routes operated by a single established Channel Islands-based airline, using aircraft that can operate from the existing runway length in Alderney, and these routes ultimately to be designated as lifeline routes; and to direct that by December 2023 the Committees shall either submit a Policy Letter to the States together with appropriate recommendations if investigations indicate that such a change is feasible or make a statement to the States’ Assembly if investigations indicate that such a change is infeasible.
