Beach protection ‘excellent idea’

THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) says the logistics of marine managed areas (MMAs) have to be worked out carefully, but considers that protecting some beach areas is an excellent idea.

Speaking to the SUNDAY SUN yesterday about the proposal to have certain coastal areas zoned and assigned as MMAs, Sue Springer said that while it was very important to preserve the country’s coastline, those involved in the project needed to work out how it was going to be sustained and funded.

Noting that two of the areas under consideration were Holetown and Carlisle Bay, she said the concept of charging to use the recreational zone could cause some issues. (MB)
