Govt open to ideas for Glendairy

Social Share

Government will be seeking proposals for the use of the old Glendairy property.

Minister of Housing George Payne announced this Tuesday as he reported the area now had “some squatters” and needed more security.

The Member of Parliament for St Andrew also said Government would be open to ideas for other dilapidated state holdings.

Payne was piloting a resolution, which was later approved by the House of Assembly, for the leasing of a parcel of land at Maxwell, Christ Church, to Mahogany Park Inc. “to give effect to the public purpose of tourism development and public parking”.

The minister said Glendairy, which was home to Her Majesty’s Prisons before being burnt in March 2005, was allowed to “go into a state of disrepair and, as a matter of fact, as I speak there are squatters in the particular area”. (SC)
