Town Park granite ‘could have been sourced locally’
A JERSEY granite supplier has said that given the proper notice, he could have supplied enough local granite for the Millennium Town Park.
The timescales set by the Transport and Technical Services to produce the granite were so tight that over 2,000 tonnes of paving slabs had to be imported from France and China – despite plans for the park spending over 11 years on the drawing board.
The slabs, imported from China by company Granite Le Pelley, were delivered to the Town Park site last week.
Nick Vibert, manager at Jersey firm La Saline Masonry, would have liked to have seen the Town Park paved in Jersey granite.
