It seems like yesterday BU was at the vanguard of highlighting the indifference shown by the then Barbados Labour Party government to how agricultural land was being reclassified and subdivide to plant concrete. Eight years later under a Democratic Labour Party government nothing has changed.
The featured notice was published in the Nation newspaper on the 21 October 2016. A review of the notification shows it to be inadequate. While the notice advises the date of of the Town Hall there is no mention of the specifics of the subdivision.
BU was able to secure a few pages from the EIA volume 2 –it relates to the development of 104 acres volume 2 we understand is 75 acres – to change its use to residential and commercial. That is a total of 179 acres. Barbadians have remained very passive on most issues – except Cahill – which translates to this project moving forward.
