Shelly Bay Consultative Process To Continue

July 12, 2018

The Minister of Economic Development and Tourism Jamahl Simmons is reminding people that the “consultative process surrounding Shelly Bay has not concluded and that you still have an opportunity to have your views heard and help shape the final outcome.”

Minister Simmons said, “This consultative process will only conclude after proposals surrounding potential offerings at Shelly Bay have been received and shared with stakeholders.

“The Government is committed to stimulating the economy, enhancing opportunities for small business growth, and to creating new and innovative opportunities for entrepreneurs.

“As part of that commitment, in our 2017 Platform we advocated for the creation of a Beach Economy that would enhance our tourism product and create opportunities for so many entrepreneurs long denied the opportunity to do for self.

“Yet as we seek to create more opportunities for Bermudians, we are equally committed to protecting and sustaining our culture, our traditions and the positive aspects of our community that generations past built for today’s Bermuda.

“That’s why we have engaged in an extensive consultative process in reference to Shelly Bay and why we will continue to consult with the community. It is important that all views are heard, all views are respected and all views are considered.

“We encourage the community to express your views, share your ideas and offer solutions that are focused on the greater good.”

    Who cares what the people in that area said YES or NO period!!! Force it on them like oba Fahy tried to push Bermuda status. We want to grow Bermuda and the beach back stong.

    • Virtual says:

      Thing is, you will never grow Bermuda without foreigners, so like it or not, Fahy was right. Still, stay stuck in poverty while moaning about foreigners, it’s your ball.

    So if we are interested in preserving our culture will BHW need a new venue for their non Bermudian thing?

    • Honestly says:

      Do your research!! You will see the connection Bermuda has to Carnival.

    Please see Col.Burch statement on black bussines

    So it is back to what Bermudians do best. Talk about doing something. Talk talk talk. You had somebody all ready to go. What did you do?

  6. Kevin says:

    This is simply lip service , Burgess has already stated in the news that the area residents will stop at nothing to stop progress. After the crying that we only got “our” beach back in the 60′s and not about to let it go again hardly shows that we live in a democratic world ….but when you have Burgess and Burch doing as they please …you should feel like you are respected after all its what you voted for

    what government you voted in
