THREE PROPOSED NEW OFFSHORE ISLANDS would have a price tag of more than half a billion dollars.

Now add at least 1 000 construction jobs and no fewer than 500 permanent posts.

Those are the latest investment figures from construction magnate Sir Charles Williams.

Forty eight hours after his younger brother Ralph “Bizzy” Williams dropped the first hint of plans for the massive tourism project, on and off-shore at Maycock’s Bay, St Lucy, Sir Charles told the SUNDAY SUN it would be the single largest private sector undertaking in Barbados’ history.

He also disclosed that one of backers that will cover more than 80 acres of existing beachfront property was already in Dubai discussing finance. (RRM)
