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 express their views and make suggestions on the future development of that area.
A community meeting will be held on Monday, March 31, at the St. Patrick???s Church Hall, Christ Church, 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 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 and Rock Hall.
Government recently 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 has become necessary because the Town and Country Development Planning Office has received several applications to subdivide or change the use of agricultural land there for residential and commercial purposes.
