Fontaine Vinery tenants welcome alternative sites
TENANTS of the Fontaine Vinery have welcomed the States’ decision last week to provide space on three areas when they move from the St Sampson’s site.
The Assembly has approved Griffith’s Yard in the Vale, Longue Hougue, St Sampson’s and the Brickfield House industrial area in St Andrew’s as areas where companies who have space at the Fontaine could move.
Space on the Pitronnerie Road industrial estate was also suggested, but this was rejected following an amendment by deputies Mark Dorey and Laurie Queripel.
Labour Force Guernsey and Mole Excavating owner Ross Le Brun was pleased that the three sites were approved: ‘It’s a good sign,’ he said, ‘but it’s not all done and dusted yet.’
Firms were told that June would be the deadline by which they would be expected to move out, but Mr Le Brun said that this could be put back.
