Unlawful erection of shacks around the island is a dangerous trend worrying the Barbuda Council, Mussington reports


REAL NEWS – The Barbuda Council has observed a worrying trend now taking place, as non-natives reportedly are erecting shacks all around the sister-island.

If last week’s tropical storm had been more intense, says Councilman John Mussington, the destruction of these structures could have been devastating.

Mussington says this type of construction is not allowed.

But based on the Central Government’s rhetoric concerning lands on Barbuda – with regard to leasehold or freehold – people are just doing what they like.

As a result, he says the Council will be looking into the situation, as this type of wanton construction is putting persons at serious risk, especially in the event of a storm or hurricane.

Meanwhile, speaking about the impact of Tropical Storm Philippe, Mussington says that Barbudans were spared the brunt of its impact.

However, the islanders are grateful for the rainfall, which is reported to have been over three inches on the sister-isle.
