Cummins: False charges
CHIEF TOWN PLANNER Mark Cummins has dismissed charges that his department is slow to process building applications.
He told reporters there was “room for improvement”, but the Town Planning Department had a good track record.
While some critics spoke of “grave delays”, there was “no empirical evidence” to support the claim, he said during a news conference at his office at The Garrison, St Michael, on Monday.
He was commenting on complaints from some businesspeople who have been saying Government departments need to speed up their work because it was causing the island to lose some projects.
