New Metal Dump twist

By Barry Alleyne | Fri, September 21, 2012 - 12:12 AM

The paper trail concerning the operations of a metal recycling plant in St Thomas has led to court action.

Attorneys at law Kerrie Symmonds and Gregory Nicholls yesterday filed an injunction in the High Court of Barbados representing six residents of the Hoyte’s Village, seeking judicial review of a decision made by the Cabinet to allow B’s Recycling to operate its metal recycling plant at the controversial St Thomas site.

According to the filing, Government’s decision to allow the facility to operate was occasioned by a process which is or was unlawful, void and of no legal effect.

It was the latest in a controversy that first raised its head in July when the Town Planning Department shut down operations at B’s, and continued last week when Minister of the Environment and Drainage, Dr Denis Lowe denied that Cabinet had made a decision to swap land at River Bay, St Lucy for B’s purportedly owned by business brothers Andrew and Paul Bynoe, to operate its metal recycling plant at Bagatelle.
