Lands Minister Maria Browne says her Ministry wants an amicable solution to growing concerns over beach access in the country.
Browne says measures are already being put in place to make good on a Cabinet decision to make beach access stronger.
She says her ministry is working with land owner near the beach to “enable access for all.”
Browne says easements are being identified so that residents can access the beaches “at all times.”
The minister says easements must be “accessible and clearly marked” so residents know exactly where the access points are.
“The beach access is number one on our list at the ministry,” Browne added.
She says any discussion on beach access must be amicable.
Residents have been expressing concern that increasingly, more and more fences are being erected at the entrance of beaches.
The government also intends to look at the law governing beach access in the country.
