Authorities Order Halt To Use Of Vacant Land In Soufriere

Saint Lucia authorities have issued a cease and desist order in connection with the illegal use of government  land in the New Development area of Soufriere, an official from the Soufriere Mayor’s office has confirmed.

According to residents of the community, a non-resident appeared to have been erecting an enclosure for cows opposite a popular restaurant.

One Soufriere resident told St Lucia Times that persons in the area were concerned about the flies and foul smell that would have been associated with the venture.

An official from the Mayor’s office disclosed that initially, there was no issue when the individual concerned began tethering cows on the land.

However, it was explained that over the course of about two months stakes were put down in the ground, giving the impression that an enclosure was on the cards.

The official told St Lucia Times that after residents complained about the matter, the authorities stepped in.

“To he best of the knowledge of residents, this specific area is zoned as residential and commercial and not for agricultural use,” one Soufriere resident stated.

  1. We only hope that the Major’s office has a good judgement of that matter! Please don’t go political with that problem! Thank you!

  2. There is nothing political about this if residents were the ones making reports and complaints. Have any of you lived in an area where livestock is being reared? do u know the foul smell it causes. Please stop making everything about politics.

  3. The government should cease and desist the reckless use of taxpayers’ monies too. Crown land is our land.
