Residents, operators of businesses, landowners and other interested persons in the districts stretching from St. David???s, Christ Church, to Six Roads, St. Philip, will soon get an opportunity to share their views on the Draft Community Plan for that area.
A community meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 17, at the Princess Margaret Secondary School, Six Cross Roads, St. Philip, beginning at 6:00 p.m.
The discussion will be hosted by Ecoisle Consulting Inc. and Open Plan, the consultants appointed by the Town and Country Development Planning Office to develop the Community Plan for St. David???s to Six Roads.
The Draft Community Plan is currently available for viewing until Tuesday, June 16, at the Bridgetown Headquarters of the National Library, Mondays to Saturdays, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.; and the Six Roads Branch Library from Mondays to Fridays between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., and from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.
It can also be reviewed at the St. Patrick???s Church Hall, Mondays to Fridays, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., or at the Town and Country Development Planning Office, Mondays to Fridays, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Those districts within the area of the Plan include Bannatyne, Bentley Tenantry, Yorkshire, Coverley, South Ridge, Lower Greys, Lead Vale, Hannays Tenantry, Kent, Ridge, Woodbourne, Four Roads, Foursquare Valley, Charnocks, Fair View, Frere Pilgrim, Rock Hall, and Searles Tenantry.
Last year, Government commissioned the comprehensive land use Community Plan for the area, stretching from St. David???s to Six Roads, to guide development there over a five-year period.
This became necessary because the Town and Country Development Planning Office had received several applications to subdivide or change the use of agricultural land there for residential and commercial purposes.
