St Helena : St Helena: EXCO REPORT – TUESDAY 20 MAY 2014
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 31.05.2014 (Article Archived on 05.07.2014)

Executive Council met on, Tuesday 20 May 2014, to discuss two items on the agenda.

EXCO REPORT – TUESDAY 20 MAY 2014

Executive Council met on, Tuesday 20 May 2014, to discuss two items on the agenda.

The first item was an application for a permanent electricity supply to the Airport. At present there is a temporary supply provided by overhead power lines.

The application was to install underground cable for the majority of the new line and to retain existing overhead power lines in two short sections.

Representatives from the Access Office and Halcrow were in attendance to provide context for the proposal and to answer any questions. Following discussion, Executive Council agreed to the amendment to the original development consent.

The second item was an update on the British and Overseas Territories Passports. This information has already received publicity in the local media. It is likely that from December 2014 all Overseas Territories Passports will be made in the UK. Arrangements remain in place locally for the issue of emergency passports for those who require urgent medical treatment overseas.

On behalf of Elected Members, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy St Helena’s Day.
