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.”
