IT’S OVER TO UNESCO to decide whether the floodlit poles associated with the proposed night horse racing will have any adverse impact on the historic Garrison Savannah.

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart on Friday paid a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, as the rejection by the Town Planning Department, of the Barbados Turf Club’s (BTC) application for the introduction of night racing onto the island’s horse racing calendar remains under appeal.

The Prime Minister was joined by BTC officials and officials from the Town and Country Planning Department, the Barbados Museum and Historical Society, the Barbados National Trust and the Garrison Consortium.

It was the third such site visit and the associations, which support and oppose the proposal, once again pitched their sides to him.
