Rock Hall squatters on edge


Fear and confusion continue to grip squatters in Rock Hall, St Philip, even after Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley’s assurances this week.

Yesterday, huddled in the darkness of the evening, scores of those residing illegally in the area vented their frustrations at the continuing saga since the Town and Country Development Planning Office placed the notices on more than 20 homes. The notices to move take effect on November 13, giving the owners two weeks to remove the structures and clear the land.

About 300 illegal structures are estimated to be on the site. Authorities have said they are a threat to aircraft.

Mottley has tried to quell the fears of the residents by pointing out that the notices were a necessary part of the process which would allow Government to legally acquire the land at Rock Hall. (TG)
