West Coast Developers Wanted

West-Coast-Development-Barbados

Barbadians have had to suffer in pain as we have had to make the trek along the West Coast of Barbados in recent years. Many of the windows to the sea have now been obliterated and most of the pedestrian trails to beaches on the West Coast have seen barriers erected as the rich and famous preserve their plots. How prophetic the words of the Mighty Gabby’s popular calypso Jack has turned out to be.

The BU household is not stupid. We understand the need for Barbados to attract foreign investment. We understand the need to build modern infrastructure to ensure that Barbados is positioned in the global economy to access opportunities to feed its people. What we don’t understand is the unplanned approach to the physical development of Barbados, in particular when directed at our precious coastline.

In light of the above the BU household and co-plaintiff (BU family member X) intends to launch a lawsuit in the Court of Public Opinion against those developers who have been at the forefront of the West Coast development in Barbados. A furious search is therefore on the way to find certain parties who have been hopping from private planes, boats and villas to avoid appearance in the Court of Public Opinion.

All help from the Bajan Blogosphere in locating parties named is appreciated.

  • Barbados was a peacefull paradise and has now been destroyed by greed, both politically by the corrupt politicians and a select few of the so called elite.The only recourse for true Bajans of every colour is open rebellion.
    Should these billionaires and millionaires foreigners not required to pay taxes on their billions and millions whereever it is earned worldwide – justifiably so since they by virtue of the land and structures they now own (raped be it) in Barbados are therefore residents of the Island which they have succesfully destroyed for the poor and humble Barbadian ??

  • Koh Samui (Thailand) has also adopted stringent building laws to protect the island’s natural beauty and to prevent the construction of the type of highrise developments which blight so many resorts around the world. This means that no buildings over three storeys can be built in certain areas, and large properties cannot be developed on or near the beachfront.

  • It is widely believed that property in Barbados is owned by the rich and famous. Although this is still the case, over the years the market has spread and diversified with prices ranging from US$400,000 to US$40,000,000.

  • “Cash is King” and this has always benefited Barbados as the super rich enjoy our beautiful island – The West Coast of Barbados is well known for its celebrity and ultra wealthy visitors and homeowners such as Simon Cowell, Mick Jagger, Hugh Grant, David & Victoria Beckham, Wayne & Colleen Rooney, Princes William & Harry, Queen Elizabeth II, The Blairs, Sir Cliff Richard, Jeremy Clarkson, Tom Cruise, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Michael Schumacher, Amy Winehouse, The Rausing Family, Sir Philip Green, Michael Winner, David Frost, Madonna, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lulu, Rihanna (born in Barbados), Sir Elton John, Richard Branson, Andrei Shevchenko, Sir Alex Ferguson, Roman Abramovich, Sting, Armani, The late Pavarotti……The list is simply endless as are the private jets lining the run ways…. Expedia voted Barbados as the number one destination in the world to spot a “celebrity”. The reason we list only a tiny number of the more well known names is not to sound like a cheap tabloid but to indicate the support, investment and attraction we have as an island. This is the reality of the market place in Barbados and it is growing and now thankfully the market has started to diversify and expand into the middle markets. The security within our property market is that prices remain stable and grow as owners are not desperate to sell due to their wealthy and the middle markets are able to secure rental income to offset the related costs as Barbados tourism is also still doing

  • Under the former government the economic philosophy was let land fetch its highest economic value, is it the same of the current government? Have we seen any change in policy you think?

  • i believe there is still time for Barbados to fix these things.
    but who will step up?
    who really cares.
    money will always make good people turn their heads.
    there needs to be a voice of the people on these matters.
    an official office of the people.
    the truth is barbados is overpopulated.
    but is the answer to making jobs?????
    selling our soil to foreigners?
    and by the way some of these foreigners are wicked evil people.
    every one wants a car for example.
    does simpson motors offer electric cars or does sirs sell cars to just make money not caring about the environmental impact.
    there will come a day when you can get in your fancy car and you wont be able to move forward.
    do the car dealers care about this?????????
    same ting only different.

  • What exactly do you expect? Most of the land that has been developed over the last number of years has been abandoned as agricultural. I guess that you think this land should be purchased by the government and doled out in parcels to the native born bajans. When these lands are built on jobs for hundreds if not thousands of men are provided. Get your head out of your drunken ass!
