IT IS still possible for the L’Ancresse anti-tank wall and kiosk to be saved, was the message underlying a protest meeting at the bay yesterday.

About 200 people turned up at L’Ancresses yesterday to protest against the States’ decision to remove part of the sea wall and were told that making representations to the Development & Planning authority could save it. (Picture by Dani Stevens)

Some 200 people gathered to show their opposition to the plans to demolish part of the wall, even though funding for the project was approved by the States earlier this month.

But once formal plans are submitted for the development work to go ahead, people were urged to make representations against them to the Development & Planning Authority.

The protest was organised by Dan Gallienne and James Piprell, regular users of the kiosk’s facilities.

‘The wall itself is part of our history,’ added Mr Gallienne.
