Saye Campsite overspend revealed

Posted Wed 19th December 2012 at 17:10

THE COST of revamping the toilet blocks at Alderney's Saye Campsite has run over budget by nearly £40,000.

The States was criticised over the summer for failing to have both the men's and women's shower and toilet blocks open for Alderney Week - the height of the island's tourist season.

The States has already allocated £144,200 to the campsite renovation project and at this month's General Services Committee chief executive Roy Burke advised the General Services Committee that money actually spent totaled £183,165 - an overspend of nearly £39,000.

He advised that in addition, a further £34,334 would be needed from the 2013 capital budget to complete the second block.

The £74,000 extra cash he said would also cover require additional "remedial work" identified by quantity surveyors who inspected the first block.

A States spokeswoman explained: "The overspend is due to various issues with incoming services - electrical work and flooring work, things like that.

"Quantity surveyors also identified that there was pooling in the showers and that levels needed adjusting."

She said work was expected to recommence on the second shower block in January, with the aim of having both units open and fully functional by the end of March.

It was revealed in department accounts published in October that money generated by the campsite in 2012 came to just £270.

It was resolved by a majority of eight to one that £65,000 plus an additional £9,000 from the 2013 capital budget be allocated towards completion of the campsite facilities.
