PTOM As Of January 1,2012!


In a meeting on October
29 in Brussels, the Euro-
pean Council voted to
accept a change in the
European status of Saint
Barth6lemy. As a result, as
of January 1, 2012, the
island will cease to be a
RUP (Outermost regions
of the European Union)
and become a PTOM
(Overseas Countries and
Territories), with the same
status as French Polynesia
and New Caledonia, as
well as Anguilla and
Bermuda. Saint Barth's
territorial council request-
ed this change a year ago,
in October 2009, at which
time they voted quasi-
unanimously in favor of
this evolution whose prin-
cipal characteristic resides
in the fact that European
Community law does not
directly affect the island.

Bruno Magras, president
of the Collectivity of Saint
Barth6lemy, had been in
favor of this transforma-
tion of the island's Euro-
pean status for some time.
For him, to evolve into a
PTOM is a logical choice:
"We opted for a specific
status, that of an Overseas
Collectivity within the


French Republic, which
gives us a certain autono-
my and legislative power
(editor's note: that is to
say, the right in certain
areas to enact regulations
specific to the collectivity
such as urban planning,
local taxes, and the envi-
ronment). It would be sur-
prising if we then opted
for a European status that
would make all of the
European norms applica-
ble here," he explained in
October 2009.

The autonomy afforded by
this new evolution does
not signify independence
vis-t-vis the European
Union: the residents of the
island maintain their
French nationality in its
entirety along with the full
French legal and justice
system. In exchange for
maintaining the Euro in
Saint Barth, the Collectivi-
ty recently crafted with the
French government "an
agreement concerning
mutual administrative
assistance in fiscal mat-
ters," with the goal of
avoiding tax evasion and
fiscal fraud, and to con-
tribute to the international
efforts to which France


subscribes in the fight
against the laundering of
money. In a nutshell: Saint
Barth6lemy, in becoming a
PTOM, is not becoming a
fiscal paradise or an off-


The result of a long process
that began in February
2008, a few weeks after the
start of new planning laws,
a new land use map and its
regulations were adopted
by the territorial council on
Tuesday, November 23.
Only one council member,
Benoit Chauvin, had the
conviction to vote against
what he calls "a map of
favoritism."
The debate, which lasted
more than an hour, exam-
ined such technical ques-
tions as the degree of con-
structability in the Led6e
development (behind the
airport), which is now in a
blue or "buildable" zone on
the new map, but with
small pine trees in certain
areas, representing areas
where building is not per-
mitted.
Bruno Magras, president of
the island council, opened
the debate, and underlined
with transparency (accord-
ing to him) with which this
document was created:
"never has a dossier been
so debated, analyzed. The


shore banking center. Nor
is it alsonot a place whose
regulations would create a
refuge for funds with
unknown origins.


executive council and
urbanism commission met
11 times. The territorial
council had seven general
commission sessions," for
a total of 18 times that the
politicians examined the
changes to the map. "There
were also two public con-
sultation periods which
resulted in more than 500
observations. It is a diffi-
cult dossier which caused
several members to lose
patience," explained the
president.
Their intended roadmap
was to preserve certain nat-
ural zones, define bound-
aries for buildable areas,
and define their specific
use, something not called
for with the previous plan-
ning document, the "Mar-
nu," which expired in
2002.
Adopted on November 23,
the new map and its regula-
tions were sent to the pre-
fecture for a legal control.
The two documents will be
applicable 15 days after the
date they were adopted;
that is as of December 8.

New Maritime Council

for Northern Islands


In 2007, France led a major
environmental study, which
led to the definition of goals
and actions to undertake.
Baptized "Grenelle de l'en-
vironnement," this first
study paved the way for a
second, more-targeted, ini-
tiative in 2009, called
"Grenelle de la mer," which
will result in a national mar-
itime policy for the next 20
years. Among other meas-
ures and activities, the
"Grenelle de la Mer" calls
for the creation of maritime
councils or committees:
four in Metropolitan France
and 10 in overseas regions
where maritime zones com-
prise more than 90% of the
French coastline. The goal
of these councils: to define
local maritime policies,
which will eventually influ-
ence national policies...


As of Friday, November 26,
Saint Barth and Saint Mar-
tin have their own commit-
tee, confirmed by prefect
Simonnet in presence of
professor Christian Buchet,
named by Nathalie
Kosciusko-Morizet, French
minister for ecology, sus-
tainable development, trans-
portation, and housing, to
follow the evolution of the
"Grenelle de la mer," and in
that role, the creation of the
maritime committees.
The joint committee for the
Northern Islands comprises
local officials, and represen-
tatives of those national and
collectivity services con-
cerned with maritime activi-
ties. The next six months
will be dedicated to defin-
ing a local maritime policy,
which will be followed by
operational propositions.

Grand Fond
For John McGinn and
friends, the annual beach
clean up on Thanksgiving
was worthwhile. "We had a
really nice > morn-
ing on the gorgeous beach at
Grand Fond," he explains.
"The weather was not too
hot, and there was a nice
breeze. There seemed to be
less debris on the beach than
in prior years, although we
still managed to fill five
large bags with plastic bot-
tles, plastic rope, bottle caps,
discarded toys, beach san-
dals, etc. Although we spent
two hours combing the
beach, there was still work
to be done when we left."
In addition to the group
from the US, a local resident
joined as well: "This year,
we had the wonderful addi-
tion of David Thyssen to the
party," says McGinn.


Clean-Up A
"David is a local resident of
Saint-Barth, a very ecologi-
cally-minded surfer, and
someone who has participat-
ed in other various beach
clean up efforts on the
island."
David Steward, who has
participated from the
beginning and is one of the
< of the group, not-
ed how surprisingly enjoy-
able the annual tradition is:
<(You get to spend a couple
of hours on one of the
world's most beautiful
beaches, extremely physi-
cally and intellectually
engaged.>
Joey Hall, one of the origi-
nal founders of the Thanks-
giving beach clean up (but
who was unable to partici-
pate this year due to ill-
ness), said later that morn-
ing, <(it is about making

small steps in the right
direction...and giving
thanks for all we have.
McGinn noted that Sibarth
(their villa management
company) took care of
properly disposing of the
contents from the big bags
of debris (and even sent

pagne). "That evening, we
hosted a Thanksgiving Din-
ner for 24 people!" adds
McGinn, who should be
applauded for his efforts in
making the beach in Grand
Fond a little cleaner every
year.

Among other measures and activities, the Grenelle de la Mer calls for the creation of maritime councils or committees: four in Metropolitan France and 10 in overseas regions where maritime zones comprise more than 90% of the French coastline. The goal of these councils: to define local maritime policies, which will eventually influence national policies As of Friday, November 26, Saint Barth and Saint Martin have their own committee, confirmed by prefect Simonnet in presence of professor Christian Buchet, named by Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, French minister for ecology, sustainable development, transportation, and housing, to follow the evolution of the Grenelle de la mer, and in that role, the creation of the maritime committees. The joint committee for the Northern Islands comprises local officials, and representatives of those national and collectivity services concerned with maritime activities. The next six months will be dedicated to defining a local maritime policy, which will be followed by operational propositions. Saturday, November 27 marked the first edition of a triathlon in Saint Barthelemy. Organized by the association, Saint Barth Triathlon, this first edition comprised a 750-meter swimming sprint, a 20km bicycle race, and a 5-km run, with 22 athletes and 12 teams of three people competing in mixed relays. Three French triathlon champions Sylvain Sudrie, long distance world champion; Aurlien Raphal, 2007 French juniors champion; and Cyril Moreau, French military team duathalon vice-championtook part in the event. Leading the pack, this A-team trio crossed the finish line by the stadium in St Jean handin-hand, creating a triple victory in this first edition of the Saint Barth Triathlon.

4St Barth Weekly n For John McGinn and friends, the annual beach clean up on Thanksgiving was worthwhile. We had a really nice clean up morning on the gorgeous beach at Grand Fond, he explains. The weather was not too hot, and there was a nice breeze. There seemed to be less debris on the beach than in prior years, although we still managed to fill five large bags with plastic bottles, plastic rope, bottle caps, discarded toys, beach sandals, etc. Although we spent two hours combing the beach, there was still work to be done when we left. In addition to the group from the US, a local resident joined as well: This year, we had the wonderful addition of David Thyssen to the party, says McGinn. David is a local resident of Saint-Barth, a very ecologically-minded surfer, and someone who has participated in other various beach clean up efforts on the island. David Steward, who has participated from the beginning and is one of the pillars of the group, noted how surprisingly enjoyable the annual tradition is: You get to spend a couple of hours on one of the worlds most beautiful beaches, extremely physically and intellectually engaged. Joey Hall, one of the original founders of the Thanksgiving beach clean up (but who was unable to participate this year due to illness), said later that morning, it is about making small steps in the right direction...and giving thanks for all we have. McGinn noted that Sibarth (their villa management company) took care of properly disposing of the contents from the big bags of debris (and even sent over a bottle of champagne). That evening, we hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner for 24 people! adds McGinn, who should be applauded for his efforts in making the beach in Grand Fond a little cleaner every year.
