BCA owed $6m

Kensington Development Corporation (KDC), a statutory corporation which leases the famed Kensington Oval cricket ground, owes the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) more than $6 million.

It stems from KDC’s inability to make annual lease payments to the BCA for a fourth successive year.

And the issue is now an “urgent” matter for the BCA, which has requested a meeting with KDC, a real estate company, and Kensington Oval Management Inc. (KOMI), which manages the facility.

The BCA’s request for an audience with KDC and KOMI follows earlier discussions with officials of the Ministry of Finance during which the local governing body for cricket expressed concerns regarding the non-payment by the Government-owned corporation.

Contacted yesterday, BCA chief executive officer Jeff Miller told the SUNDAY SUN he had written to KDC and KOMI a few days ago on the instructions of the board of management, which used its last meeting to set up a committee to represent the BCA at the talks.
