Jersey National Park adds “vital voices” to board

Friday 13 May 2022

The Jersey National Park has appointed new a board of directors and members to help it on its mission to conserve and enhance the island’s natural beauty and promote opportunities for islanders to understand and enjoy it.

The new members accompany existing Park directors, Honorary Chair Jim Hopley MBE and Mike Stentiford MBE, who have worked for many years to establish the Park as a reality since it was declared as a planning designation in 2011.

The new members are:

  • Jon Carter, Jersey Heritage CEO

  • James Godfrey, Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society CEO 

  • Charles Alluto, National Trust CEO 

  • Dr Lesley Dickie, Durrell CEO

  • Paul Wagstaffe, Managing Director of Nurture Ecology

  • Eamon Fenlon, Jersey Dairy CEO

  • Kevin McIlwee, Chair of Jersey Marine Conservation

  • Richard Le Sueur, the architect behind El Tico, and resident and landowner in St. Ouen's Bay, which forms the largest part of the park. 

“Our vision for the Park is for a collective of beautiful places, varied landscapes and spaces, where the natural environment, cultural history and sustainable practices within the Park are valued, understood, respected and celebrated harmoniously,” Honorary Chair of the Jersey National Park, Jim Hopley, MBE, said.

“The new members are vital voices and partners. Their input and support towards our strategic direction will help raise awareness to aid conservation and protection of the Island’s most precious landscapes and spaces.”

Should the owner of Simon Sand not have a voice on this board. Would surely help with restoring one of the largest areas of the bay? Just a thought? Get the people actually involved in the area who will restore the landscape. Common sense I would of thought.
