I seek your assistance in bring a matter of concern to the attention of the public and the authorities. I am attaching a number of photos. The property concern is now known as The Brownes, it is in the finishing stages of development following a make over to form a condo complex. It is located at Browne’s Gap, Hastings, Christ Church, across from KFC on Highway 7. This was property was originally built in the 1970’s and was know then as the Bajan Inn. It later operated as Rockley Surf. From the early 1970’s this roadway outside this building has always had a full four foot wide public sidewalk. The photos clearly show six projectiles make of clay tiles. These tiles has been installed the las few week during the finishing stages of the renovation . They are not replacements but at new additions to the structure. These installations were made simple to prevent water draining from the exposed stair landings from staining the new limestone finishes. The tiles and about 18 inches long and are about 4 to 4.5 feet from the ground.
They now represent a clear and present danger to adults children and workers walking along this area. In addition, they represent an infringement on the public roadway.When it rains they will cause pedestrians to have too walk in the carriageway to be completely away from the these running taps. Why do we allow people to come into this country perform such inconsiderate acts which would never be entertained or tolerated in their native lands? Kindly assist me in having this situation addressed before some innocent person gets injured and takes their own recourse. Please see this link marketing this condo complex.
