Coastal Erosion Mitigation Project soon to be reactivated

Basseterre, St. Kitts, May 23, 2017 (SKNIS): The enhancement of the beaches at South Frigate Bay and Friars Bay has not been forgotten as plans to reactivate the Coastal Erosion Mitigation Project are in the works, says Minister of Tourism, Honourable Lindsay Grant, during a sitting of Parliament on May 23.

According to Minister Grant, the project is extremely important for the enhancement of the beaches.

“The Ministry of Tourism is very close to reactivating this project and we recently requested funds to secure the services of experts who can advise on how best to proceed with recommendations which we had made in 2015 by Smith Warner’s Report,” he said.

The objective of the project is to develop and implement a beach protection system that supports the re-nourishment of the beaches, both at South Frigate Bay and also at Friars Bay, for the long term preservation of the replenished locations, explained Minister Grant.

The tourism minister said that this intervention is critical to preserve sustainable livelihoods among business operators both at South Frigate Bay and at Friars Bay who make their living by selling food and services to visitors and locals alike.
