Squatting out of control


Share post:

Where is the Government control at the ever expanding squatter village at Rock Hall, St Philip?

This is the question being asked by a senior health official and an aviation administrator in relation to the out of control village located just outside the perimeters of the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA).

The last time there was any attempt by authorities to deal with the proliferation of squatters there was back in 2007 when the Town Planning Department served notice on the 36 squatters.

Most of those people have left, but now it is estimated that more than 300 structures stretching from the airport boundary to the neighbouring Oldbury and Gemswick, are occupied mainly by illegal immigrants. (MB)
