MP glad to see dump go


Share post:

That’s how Member of Parliament (MP)?for St James Central Kerrie Symmonds feels after the decision by B’s Metal Recycling Plant to abandon the Bagatelle, St Thomas site as its metal dump.
Symmonds, the MP for the area, told the DAILY?NATION that residents can now breathe and sleep a lot easier.
“I feel a sense of vindication that is understandably shared by residents of Bagatelle, Hoyte’s Village, King’s Village, Prior Park and other surrounding districts which stood potentially to be affected by way of environmental fallout from the B’s recycling facility,” he said.
Last year, he and fellow attorney Gregory Nicholls filed an injunction in the High Court representing six residents of Hoyte’s Village to seek judicial review of a decision made by Cabinet to allow B’s Recycling to operate its metal recycling plant at the controversial St Thomas site.
