Barbados Coastline Gone!

The practice of the rich and famous to build luxury properties on the coastlines of Spain appears to be running into a snag. There is the glaring similarity to what is happening in Barbados. Of course the big difference if we are to compare Barbados to Spain, the Barbados government will never imitate the decision of Spain to demolish properties on our coastline.
Perhaps it is unfair to compare Spain to Barbados as far as what it possible. Spain is a developed country in the world and is blessed with significantly more resources than Barbados. Nevertheless the rationale behind the Spanish government to clear 482 miles of coastline would mesh with the perennial concerns of Barbadians. What makes it more acute for Barbados is for us to reflect that the habitable coastline of Barbados must be less than 12 miles! The coastline of Barbados has become depressing to view in recent years.
Maybe our comparison is somewhat extreme we have to admit but it raises the concern by many yet again. The physical development of our coastline is currently being undertaken on an ad hoc basis. A survey of the coastline suggests that Barbados has past the point of no return. Our coastline as been raped of its exotic and intoxicating beauty FOREVER!
