The ball was dropped too often on vital projects over the years and realtor Sir Paul Altman is encouraging officials to ensure they follow through on several City projects.

He listed to the the redevelopment of Roebuck Street, the historic Marshall Hall on Hincks Street and the proposed Pierhead Cruise Passenger facility as starting points.

During the Barbados Town Planning Society’s lunchtime webinar, Bridgetown Revitalisation: Heritage, A Doorway To Regeneration yesterday, Sir Paul explained that different circumstances led to the shelving of the developments.
