Alderney Postal Survey Completed

In February and March this year, the Alderney Marine Forum conducted a postal survey of Alderney residents to collect views on how the sea around Alderney should be managed for the benefit of all residents over the next 10 years and beyond. A short summary of the survey results has been produced and will be used to help inform the development of a marine management plan for Alderney's waters.
