KimberlyCentral government signed off on most of the permits for this particular project before it was initially presented to local government.

MaddieI wish I knew the answer because it is obvious that Local Goverment isn't going to do anything!

ColinCan anyone answer these questions:
Does the central government have the legal authority to halt the development?
What avenues need to be taken to encourage the central government to act?

MaddieFrom what I understand, we have Local Goverment to thank for approving this!

Sue R.I fully agree with Maddie. Having been on the island over Christmas, I was shocked to see Valentine’s “new developments” encroaching into Dunmore Street. Any neighbours I talked to were offended, disconcerted and yet sadly resigned to this nasty invasion of their turf. Whose wily idea was it to stretch this tourist complex right into the heart of Briland . . . and the natives’ backyards?!?!

It stinks . . . where is all this going to end?

MaddieNow I found it, thanks! I'm thrilled that they are upset, but it seems to be a day late...
