The Council of the BSTA recently passed a resolution expressing concern about the lack of information being present to be the public regarding the proposed Cahill Water to energy plant and the Multipurpose sugar factory. Find the full text below.
WHEREAS the Cahill Waste to Energy plant and the State of the Art Multipurpose Sugar Factory projects, each reportedly valued in excess of $Bds.500M, appear to be proceeding towards implementation without adequate information being provided to stakeholders and without a number of regulations being complied with.
BE IT RESOLVED THAT in the interest of all Barbadians, these and all other government projects must be properly analysed for environmental impact and technical and financial viability as required by the established rules of the government of Barbados and as required for good governance of the country.
Furthermore those analyses must be conducted in a transparent manner by suitably qualified persons/organisations.
We wish you and Barbados all success in the future.
