This Ordinance provides for the protection of the coast of Guernsey. It prohibits the taking of material or breaking of rocks on the coastline without a permit of the States Board of Administration. The Board may attach to the grant of a permit under this section such conditions (including a condition that the permit shall only be operative during such period as shall be therein specified) as it may deem necessary or expedient. Nothing contained in this Ordinance shall restrict the right of any person as regards any place, other than a beach, which, for the purposes of this Ordinance, forms part of the shore, in relation to the cultivation of that place and any change of soil thereon which is incidental to such cultivation.
