SOME RESIDENTS OF Cattlewash, St Joseph, are angry about the construction of a large house there.

While declining to be identified, one of the detractors, who said he was representing residents who did not want to appear in the Press, said he was tired of construction that was destroying Barbados.

“I’m speaking on behalf of residents of Cattlewash. Our main concern is that house is not being built along the proper building guidelines; that house is not being constructed in conjunction with the rules and regulations of construction along the East Coast.

“I am speaking on behalf of those who are tired of this . . . . It happening all around the island and it is destroying this island,” he said, adding he heard the owner of the house was from overseas.
