200 acres of La Vallee land retained for development
ZIZ NEWSROOM- CF
Deputy Prime Minister, and Representative for Constituency #5, Hon. Shawn Richards says 200 acres of La Vallee land has been retained for development in Sandy Point.
Minister Richards made the announcement while delivering remarks at the 3rd in a series of Government organised Community Consultations at the Sandy Point Community Centre on Tuesday night.
LaVallee Greens has been the center of much controversy in the last decade considering the former Dr. Denzil Douglas led St. Kitts-Nevis Labour administration’s plans to develop 220 acres worth of golf course and driving range.
Minister Richards said the government made the decision to retain the land for development after learning that the St. Kitts Nevis Anguilla National Bank was attempting to sell hundreds of acres of land to redeem debt acquired by the former government.
In a previous statement, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Hon. Timothy Harris said that the La Vallee project, under the leadership of the former Denzil Douglas Administration, created a significant part of the public debt of nearly $62 million.
The Government has since signed agreements with officials of Range Developments, the developer of the 126-room Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour, and representatives of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas for the establishment of Six Senses St. Kitts at La Vallee Greens.
