Press Release:- Dr. Reginald Murphy, a leading archaeologist in the region, has returned to the island as scheduled, as part of his remit to complete archaeological works which began months ago on the area of interest at Point Hardy.
The first phase of his engagement produced a report that has been submitted to the DCA.
His scheduled visit for this week is consistent with the recommendations of Stage 1 of the study.
In this stage, Dr. Murphy will be on site to excavate and remove any remaining archaeological artefacts in the area, before development commences.
Dr. Murphy recently concluded an Archaeological investigation report which forms part of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) as required by country’s Development Control Authority for projects of this scope and impact.
Cabot Saint Lucia notes that it is pleased to continue working with the DCA to ensure due process is followed, and that Dr Murphy’s involvement at this stage is part of this effort.
Cabot will continue to adhere to recommended protocols, which include stoppage of work and removal of any artefact by an archaeologist, should any new discoveries be unearthed during construction.
Dr Murphy has already met with officials from the DCA for ongoing consultation and input into this final stage of his work.
The terms of reference for the archaeological survey were prepared by the DCA in conjunction with relevant stakeholders.
Dr Murphy was selected to conduct the survey from a list of highly recommended archaeologists provided by the Saint Lucia National Trust.
As the first international property by the acclaimed developers of Cabot Cape Breton, Cabot Saint Lucia is expanding upon its legacy of excellence with a brand-new golf club, residential community and resort located on a lush 375-acre peninsula in Saint Lucia.
The property will feature a masterful Coore and Crenshaw designed 18-hole golf course, a stunning collection of residences ranging from hillside townhomes to expansive single-family homes and customizable beachfront lots, and a boutique resort.
Cabot Saint Lucia broke ground on Phase One of the development in the summer of 2019 and the golf course will open in November 2022.
