Planners may let public speak out in open meetings

In future islanders may be allowed to voice their views during Guernsey's open planning meetings, the environment minister has said.

It comes after some islanders said they were unhappy at not being permitted to speak out at the first open meeting.

Deputy Peter Sirett said: "Once we've had the process running for a short period of time we'll be able to look at introducing opportunities."

He said those speaking would still have to submit their objections in writing.

Deputy Sirett added: "But at the moment we're sticking with the idea that the representations will be purely in writing as they always are for every application."
