Parish Land folks uneasy about coming residents


With 20 squatters from Rock Hall set to join their community soon, residents of Parish Land Tenantry, St Philip, are concerned that their slice of heaven, as they have come to know it, could be forever changed. 

Yesterday, Minister of Housing Dr William Duguid broke ground on the road for the development, signalling the start of the fulfilment of a promise to fix an issue more than a decade old.

Forty-year resident Austin Harrington explained that the community was most concerned about preserving their way of life. (CLM)
