Jamal Weekes banner, Top Stories

Members of the public are asked to note that due to the danger posed to low flying aircrafts, kite flying is prohibited in a number of areas around the island.

These districts fall within five kilometres of the perimeter of the Grantley Adams International Airport, and run from Oistins in Christ Church to Boarded Hall in St. George; Brereton and Six Roads in St. Philip, and back to South Point and Oistins.

Kites must not be flown in the following areas in Christ Church: Silver Hill, Gall Hill, Kingsland, Wotton, Maxwell, Cane Vale, Newton, Scarborough, Pegwell, Gibbons, Thornbury Hill, Silver Sands, Ealing Park, Wilcox, Lowlands, Coverley, Charnocks, Pilgrim Road, Fairy Valley, Durants, Callenders, Chancery Lane, Parish Land and Leadvale.

Other areas where kite flying is prohibited are Gemswick, Mangrove, Heddings, Foul Bay, Ocean City, Diamond Valley, and Rock Hall in St. Philip.

Persons found guilty of flying kites in these restricted areas may be liable on summary conviction to a fine of $50,000 or imprisonment for a term of 12 months, or on indictment to a fine of $100,000, or to imprisonment for a term of two years.
