Beckingham responds in 12-storey development verdict

Providenciales, 17 Nov 2015 – Governor Peter Beckingham today issued comment in connection to the Supreme Court decision to halt construction on a 12-storey development in Grace Bay; CJ Margaret Ramsay-Hale after reviewing the evidence ruled that that the project was essentially being fast tracked and missed vital steps outlined in the Planning Ordinance.

Governor Beckingham said, and I quote: “I understand that the Government are considering their next steps on this, and will be issuing a statement shortly. They will of course need to take legal advice from the Attorney General.”

Approval had been given since February for construction of the building but condotel owners in the area filed a complaint and yesterday learned in that judgment handed down by the Chief Justice that they won the case against the Minister of Infrastructure and Planning, the Planning Department Director and the Governor.
