The Ministry of Environment, Planning and Infrastructure Strategy

The Bermuda Government is seeking to have a Special Development Order (SDO) approved to permit the Tucker's Point Hotel to expand its current hotel and build additional residences.

This is some of the most ecologically sensitive land in Bermuda as there are lands with Nature Conserve, Woodland Reserve and Coastal Conserve designations.

It is also a culturally sensitive plot of land as it had once been home to a large number of Black Bermudians and had been taken from them forcibly.

For the Minister of the Environment, Planning, and Infrastructure Strategy Walter Roban and the Minister of Business Development and Tourism Patrice Minors' answers to questions raised, see here: http://bernews.com/2011/02/ministers-answer-sdo-questions-on-citv/

We are asking that the Bermuda Government reconsider this Special Development Order (SDO) and reverse their decision to potentially allow building on this ecologically and culturally sensitive land.

This will come before the Senate, and it is likely that this will be in the next session on the 16th of March, so it is imperative that action is taken now!
