The Hyatt Hotel Project Requires Prime Minister Stuart’s Approval

Posted as a comment to the A Legal Challenge to the HYATT HOTEL is Looming by DAVID COMISSIONG

My further reading of the relevant statutory instruments has confirmed that the Chief Town Planner is OBLIGATED to refer an application for planning permission that relates to beachfront property on the coast of Barbados to the relevant Minister of Government— the Prime Minister— for his decision. Thus, even though Maloney”s / Visions Develop Inc’s application may have been addressed to the Chief Town Planner, it is Prime Minister Stuart who has to consider it and make the decision.

The Town and Country Planning Act also stipulates that in so doing, Stuart HAS to refer to the country’s Physical Development Plan and to any other material or relevant circumstance.

The problem is though that the Physical Development Plan was last amended in 2003, and this “new” 2003 Plan was ratified in or about 2008— even though the Town and Country Planning Act stipulates that the Chief Town Planner HAS to carry out a survey of the Island at least once every 5 years, and HAS to submit a Report and any recommendations or proposals for amendment or additions to the Physical Development Plan to the Minister (the Prime Minister). The current and operative Barbados Physical Development Plan is thus a 2003 Plan !

In 2011, some 8 years after the current Physical Development Plan was established, the City of Bridgetown was designated a UNESCO world heritage site!

How is Stuart going to carry out his statutory duty with an outdated Physical Development Plan that has not factored in the UNESCO designation?

I have drafted a letter about all this to Stuart and will be delivering it to him tomorrow.

    @ AC

    You seriously presented the above shiite as a response?

    Your comment: “However that being the case there are still many internal as well as ongoing external factors that have played influential roles in slowing down or the prevention of govt acquiring some of the promises,” IS A POOR EXCUSE and SHOULD be DISMISSED as SHIITE.

    By your response, you are essentially saying David Thompson WAS the ONLY MEMBER of the DLP RESPONSIBLE for DELIVERING the promises made. And after his death, NO OTHER MEMBER of the DLP was CAPABLE ENOUGH to take the INITIATIVE to complete those programmes?

    Shiite, no wonder Barbados is in shiite street under these wild boys who AC, by their comments, has admitted since the other members were INCAPABLE of ACHIEVING the manifesto promises, they are also INCAPABLE of managing Barbados.

    You are also implying that rather than IMMEDIATELY pursuing those policies, as determined by Thompson, for the BENEFIT of Barbadians, Stuart IMMEDIATELY PURSUED PERSONAL BENEFITS, by HASTILY MOVING into Illaro Court IMMEDIATELY after being APPOINTED as PM.

    Additionally, the promises I always allude to, as identified in the 2008 manifesto, would not have taken any FUNDS to EXECUTE, including integrity legislation, ministers signing a code of conduct, and all the other policies proposed under “22 Good Governance” on pages 46 to 48 of the said manifesto.

    The contract of trust between gov’t and populace has been broken.

    It cannot be rebuilt other than by another general election.

    Until that day, nothing that the DLP administration attempts to do will be supported by the Bajan majority.

    There is no way to get around this very simple fact.

    There was never any doubt that the PM has the final say.

    We don’t call him the Minister of Planning for nothing.

    Very few things could happen in Barbados unless they have the blessings of this dictator.

    All of these public consultations are mere window dressing, if they could be held.

    But the PM and minister of planning does not have to listen to the people.

    Any PM of Barbados is akin to God Almighty.

    Let’s hope this is the beginning of an honest debate about economic policy. But there is an elephant in the room – the enormous ignorance of opinion formers.
    Government should introduce an honest and transparent policy of quantitative easing, based on infrastructural spending and the training of young people aged 16-24. Job creation is importing, and if these young people do not get in to the habit of getting up in the morning to go to work they will quickly become a lost generation.
    We also need to develop a dynamic capital market and financial intermediation suitable for a small island-economy. We cannot continue to depend on wealthy local business people or investments from dubious foreign investors.
    We also have to b honest with ourselves. The Barbados economy has been underperforming the regional and global economies for decades. From the dawn of civilisation to about 1820, the global economy grew by 1.4 times, from 1870 to 1913, it grew 1.7 times, from 1950 to 1973, 1.9 and from 1973 to 2003, 1.6 times.
    As the late Eric Hobsbawn, the economic historian reminded us, the period from 1950-73 were the Golden Years, the period of the Marshall plan and when the main export from Barbados was its young people.
    When Barbados became independent in 1966, an independent Singapore was a year old. It was a back water rejected even by Malaysia and used by Britain mainly to train its troop for guerrilla warfare.
    From about that time to 2012, four years after the global banking crisis and the following recession, 800m people were living on US$1.90 a day, which misled Barbadians in to believing that the local economy was a middle ranking one.
    I can even remember Ms Williams, the then governor of the central bank, talking nonsense about Barbados being a developed society.
    Self-delusion was always a big part of the collective Barbadian self-image.
    There is a big debate to be had about this development,compared with Barbados, but as a people we prefer political abuse and hyperbole, rather than rational and progressive debate.
    How about this as an idea: we are addictive to tourism, inviting ordinary working people to Barbados when our people will serve them like domestics.
    At the same time, we have a genuine world-class product, rum, which is not even discussed. How about that for economic leadership?

    This gov t was giving a second mandate and it is up to them to deliver and avoid being drawn into a contemptuous cess pool of political drivel

    “In 2014, the Stuart administration took the decision to compulsorily acquire the abandoned Sam Lord’s Castle property for the development of a branded resort.”

    DD…a better question is…did they pay for it at all, is Sam Lord’s Castle not part of the CLICO scam, now under judicial management, paid for by government. ..with taxpayer’s money, under that scam, does it not fall under an acquisition.@@@@

    Sam Lords did not belong to the name above named , I was to be owned By CLICO , but even that was not true based on the History we heard and know of,

    When you check the governments records on ‘compulsorily acquired’ you will not find no “clear title” nor History of payment of such place from the true owner,

    This is a bit of a stretch, even for someone who’s already told us that “what’s interesting about the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela [redundant comma] is not what the coffee-coloured people are doing.”

    In the case if Barbados, Mr. Austin, what the wearying user of tedious cliché might call “the elephant in the room” is in fact the astonishing extent of barely functional literacy among such a substantial proportion of the younger population.

    Your numbers are virtually meaningless in a world of intellectual honesty, and you have to be careful with Mr. Hobsbawn (note the spelling). He was a genius, of course, and unlike any living Bajan he wrote like an angel, but he did tend to think that the Russians won the Second World War.

    Now, those coffee-coloured Venezuelan housewives streaming through the machine gun-toting robots of the border force in the, er, cough, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela can perhaps teach us a thing or two. My man Eric H. would have approved. You have read all that stuff, right, Mr Austin?

    @ac re your 11:58 a.m. post, Are you justifying what was not captured in the 2013 manifesto to means that the Stuart Administration is not mandated to be truthful, transparent, provide information to the public on Cabinet meetings or contracts?
    The unwritten clause as relates to any member of Parliament elected by the people are based on these requirements. No one would ever be elected to hold office if they provide information staying that these basic requirements would not be delivered. In essence whether they were written in the 2013 document or not they are an unwritten requirement by the people.
