Permission sought for airport project import base
Planning permission is being sought for a base at Longue Hougue to deal with the import of materials for Guernsey's airport surfaces project.
The Public Services Department wants to use to the land in St Sampson's as a shipping terminal and storage facility.
Airport Director Colin Le Ray said the area could house a range of facilities, and had advantages over other ports.
He told BBC Guernsey: "We can take larger vessels in for shipping of the aggregate into the island."
The Public Services Department said the area could house a concrete plant, a weighbridge, car parking, huts to house workers and floodlighting.
It has yet to identify where the main accommodation site for workers on the scheme will be placed.
The £80m project, the largest capital project the island has ever undertaken, is aimed at equipping the airfield for a 30-year lifespan.
It will involve the resurfacing and repositioning of the runway, and the resurfacing of the taxiways and apron.
