Hyatt cases to be heard on May 9
THE FIGHT AGAINST the construction of the Hyatt Hotel in Bridgetown will take full effect on May 9.
David Comissiong, who is leading the legal action against the multi-million dollar hotel in Bridgetown, updated the media this morning after returning to the Supreme Court.
The brief hearing was set to deal with the interlocutory application where Comissiong is asking for an order that would suspend the permission granted to developers until the court determines a judicial review on the legality of the process which gave the initial go-ahead.
The order would suspend the permission granted to Mark Maloney’s company to construct the Bay Street hotel “pending the full hearing and determination of the judicial review application”.
On the opposing side, the Minister responsible for Town and Country Planning was given until May 8 to file affidavits in response.
The matter was heard before Justice Randall Worrell in the Number 9 Supreme Court. Deputy Solicitor General Donna Brathwaite QC is representing the Prime Minister’s Office. (TKS)
