cross channel link


This Council:

1.    Notes that at various times there has been a cross channel ferry service to France from the City, most recently in 1992 from the Marina;


2.    That such a service based not on car use, but bike and foot/wheelchair passengers have the potential to increase tourism, create employment and be very popular with residents;


Council therefore requests the Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee to call for an officer report to explore options for the re-establishment of a cross channel passenger service from the Marina including:

a.    Whether such a service could be publicly run and operated or run as a cooperative or joint venture

b.    Revenue raising potential of such a service

c.    Transport links to the railway station(s) and bus routes
