AN?ECONOMIST?and a Member of Parliament (MP) have lambasted any notion to make the stretch between St David’s, Christ Church and Six Roads, St Philip a concrete jungle.
Speaking at a town hall meeting at St Patrick’s Anglican Church on Monday night on the proposed use of that stretch, Sir Frank Alleyne and Government Member of Parliament James Paul made passionate pleas for agriculture to be placed on the front burner in relation to land usage.
The Government has commissioned a land use plan for the largely agricultural area as a result of planning applications for residential and commercial use.
Before a packed audience that included Chief Town Planner Mark Cummins and former Christ Church MPs Reginald Farley and Robert “Bobby”?Morris, Sir Frank, who is one of the consultants on the project, made it clear that good agricultural land should not be used for housing development.
