Collectively, the Board will share a diversity of real-world commercial expertise and social accountability to ensure our community’s resources and assets achieve the greatest future economic and social outcomes.

Once approved, the Board will establish the Agency’s strategic direction and prepare the Long-Term Development Plan for Guernsey’s east coast infrastructure.

In the long term, the Board will manage land assets, establish commercial partnerships, work with the community, oversee infrastructure development and ultimately deliver positive economic, social and environmental outcomes for the island.

The Agency wants to attract experienced Directors to the Board who care deeply about the island community and who can, individually and collectively, contribute to the strategy, planning and development of all frameworks necessary to implement complex infrastructure development projects.
