Lashley upset by demolition


Share post:

Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley has expressed dissatisfaction with the demolition of a 100-year-old chapel situated at the Lazaretto site, Black Rock, St Michael.

He described the development as regrettable, and said that when the project came to his attention he asked the ministry to have discussions with the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, which is responsible for it, with “a view to ensuring that we could preserve the chapel”.

“My view is that the chapel should have been preserved. I don’t in any way condone the destruction of buildings that are of immense heritage value to Barbados and it is regrettable that that has occurred.

“I believe the most important aspect of regret is that you should not really proceed to do that without the widest possible consultation.” (JS)
