Tidal plans passed; Frank Dean resigns

Posted Tue 11th November 2008 at 09:54

Plans to speed up Alderney's tidal power project have been given the green light.

A disagreement between the States' representatives, the Alderney Commission for Renewable Energy, and developers Alderney Renewable Energy had threatened to derail the latest proposals.

However, the two bodies put pen to paper on a new deal ? which includes the scrapping of a pilot project planned for next year ? just minutes before last night's States meeting.

Six of the island's ten politicians voted in favour of the scheme, which will lead to electricity being generated in Alderney waters two years earlier than planned. Richard Willmott, Colin Williams, Liz Bennett, Ian Tugby, Tony Llewellyn and Bill Walden all voted in favour, while Barbara Benfield, Lin Maurice and Barry Pengilley abstained.

Frank Dean was the only member to vote against the proposal and he resigned immediately after the meeting.
