Smith Barcadere case points to need for public notification reform

A developer who helped spearhead the movement to save Smith Barcadere from development told Cayman 27 the public notification process needs reform.

Morne Botes, creator of the Save the Cove Facebook page, pointed to the Smith Cove case, where developers applied to develop a parcel adjacent to crown land. He told Cayman 27 only those in the immediate vicinity were notified of the application, giving them only a week to get the word out to the greater public before the 21-day objection period expired.

“The notification process needs to change,” said Mr. Botes. “This was next to a public beach, and the public should have been notified. It should have been in the paper, or something.”

He said when public land may be impacted, the public at large deserves a notification.
