‘JAMESTOWN: A VISION FOR 2020’ - NOW ALSO AVAILABLE ONLINE
St Helena is at a pivotal point in her history with air access and the proposed shift of cargo and freight operations to Rupert’s Bay over the next four years. Jamestown, the Island’s capital, needs to redefine its function as its role as principal gateway to the Island comes to an end.
These changes are likely to lead to opportunities within Jamestown as warehousing, shipping, and wholesaling operations relocate, St Helena Government consolidates its operations, and new opportunities for tourism and leisure activities arise.
At the core of these changes is a discussion document, ‘Jamestown: A Vision for 2020’, which is now out for public consultation. Comments received during the consultation will inform the development of a Masterplan for Jamestown which will help direct decision making by SHG, ESH, the Planning Board, individuals and businesses.
A copy of the document is now available on the homepage of the SHG website www.sainthelena.gov.sh. Government employees can also view the document on Sharepoint (found on the homepage). Please note that this a large document to download.
Hard copies of the document can be viewed upstairs at the Canister, Jamestown, Monday to Friday 11.00 to 13.00, and on Saturdays 10.00 to 13.00. Written comments can be left in the confidential dropbox at the Canister and email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The consultation process will last eight weeks ending on 5 April 2013.
