Alderney Plans Tech Park

Guernsey has detailed plans for the creation of a technology park in Alderney, which will continue to bolster Alderney’s prowess as a place for the e-gaming industry to establish operations.

Commenting on the plan, Robin Le Prevost, the director of e-commerce development for Alderney said the new GBP250m development would assert the islands' position at the forefront of the industry and provide security of technical capacity for many years to come.

“It is a wonderful development for Alderney and Guernsey and a substantial addition to the islands’ existing technical resources. The island has developed an innovative licensing package which is offering increased value to potential businesses who chose to register in Alderney.”

“The technology park further enhances our excellent technical infrastructure and cements our reputation as a world leader in e-gaming,” Le Prevost concluded.

Charles Billson, the chairman of developers Long Port, believes that the Guernsey Technology Park’s connectivity and resilience will be second-to-none being halfway between London and Paris, and connected to the Transatlantic and global optical fibre grids. Building on the 16.5 acre plot - formally a horticultural site - is to begin shortly with a view to buildings being ready to occupy in 2011.
