Squatters must move
THE TOWN AND COUNTRY Planning Department is not backing down from its stance that squatters must move from the important Zone One water table of The Belle, St Michael.
Chief Town Planner Mark Cummins made the declaration yesterday as he introduced a committee of diverse individuals who will oversee the introduction of the island’s Physical Development Plan for the next five years.
Cummins said the plan to remove the squatters will be tied to an amended Barbados Water Authority Act that will classify The Belle as an Exclusion Zone and possible Zone A area, a change from its current Zone One classification.
“The Belle is critical to the process. The Belle is where the majority of Barbados’ drinking water comes from so I have no doubt The Belle will be very much an Exclusion Zone and Zone A,” he said.
