PM MAKES CASE FOR BANANES BAY UPGRADE

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has sought to make the case for the Bananes Bay development as part of a broader plan to transform Castries into a full fledge cruise port.

He recently led a number of officials on a site tour of the location earmarked for the proposed project.

Castries South MP Ernest Hilaire who says he welcomes moves to enhance the area in his constituency raised objection with what he claims was a lack of consultation with residents.

Speaking during the latest Taiwanese government cheque handover, the Prime Minster explains that future aid donations from the diplomatic ally will be used for community projects like Bananes Bay.

He says it is about improving the economic environment. The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of attendant facilities, and attractions to draw cruise passengers and crew in port can recreate and patronize local communities.

Chastanet wants communities to retain their rustic appeal while offering first-class amenities. Prime Minister Chastanet says enhancing the aesthetics of nearby establishments is also on the cards.

  1. I am very impressed with this approach to the revitalization of the Banane area. During my early teen years we lived on Hospital Road. Me and my brother with our Sling Shots played all over the La Tok area; with no traffic it was a quiet and dead area. After all these years with No-Show
    I am encouraged to see a proposed change to beautify La-Tok/ Banane my late brother would
    be so happy.Thank God someone has the vision necessary to do something and thank Tai-Wan
    for their continuous help to St. Lucia. Next is the majestic Castries Market for beautification. I’m
    hoping to live to see many more redevelopments cum beautification such as “The Gardens” etc.
