The Seine-Eure Conurbation Community (CASE) wishes to be a stakeholder in the development of the river ruise sector on the Seine, and has been working for over a year with cruise lines and partners (Rouen Normandie Metropolitan Authority as part of the Metropolitan Centre, the Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the Eure Tourism authority, various municipal authorities in the Eure County, private service providers, etc.) to provide quality tourist amenities in order to generate large-scale economic spin-offs for the region. The cruise lines have indicated a lack of ports of call in particular all along the Seine in the Eure County. Although
the existing ports of call are being modernized or expanded they are no longer enough to cope with the expansion of this business. The CASE has carried out an extensive analysis and scoping study. It has proposed to create a pontoon for river cruises at the tip of the island «de la Poterie» which would be able to accommodate 135m long boats. The rest of the island, which is owned by the CASE, is protected and is the subject of a project to upgrade the natural environment. This project is not limited to the development of the site. It forms an essential part of a comprehensive strategy developed at the scale of the Urban area in association with the Departmental Council. A study will be carried out to define how to welcome cruise passengers in the best possible conditions. Work on adapting the local tourist and business amenities offer will also be carried out, particularly with respect to foreign customers. Finally, a section consisting of regional marketing and the promotion of tourist services for cruise passengers will be developed in parallel. This project is an opportunity for the municipality to enhance the banks of the Eure and Seine rivers within its district. Upgrading the banks of the Eure is one of the strategic issues for the town in terms of development.

Opportunities:
- Although it is located on the main navigation channel, the site presents no major safety risks for navigation and river operations
- It meets all the technical requirements to berth boats 135 m long with deep draught
- It meets all the criteria to attract cruise lines ("postcard" image, environmental quality, sector with no ports of call, parking possibilities, wide variety of shops immediately accessible, etc.)
- Located far from any housing, the site will not cause any noise or nuisance

Issues:
- Develop the direct and indirect spin-off of river cruises on the Seine for the Seine-Eure region and more generally for the Eure Department and the Region.
- Allow local residents to reclaim this part of the island.
- Achieve the coexistence on the island of tourism and leisure activities with the protection of the natural environment.
 - This project is not limited to the development of the site. It forms an integral part of a comprehensive strategy developed at the scale of the Urban area in conjunction with the Departmental Council. A study will be carried out how to welcome cruise passengers in the best possible conditions. Work on adapting the local tourist and business amenities offer will also be carried out,
 particularly with respect to foreign customers. Finally, a section consisting of regional marketing and the promotion of tourist services for cruise passengers will be developed in parallel.
