Rock Hard case adjourned
It will be a while longer before Rock Hard Cement’s challenge to an enforcement notice issued by the Town & Country Planning Department is over.
Justice Randall Worrell adjourned the matter until October 11 on Monday, after attorneys for the two sides met in chambers in the No 9 Supreme Court.
After the proceedings, attorneys for Rock Hard Cement, Vincent Watson and Derrick Oderson, told the media they had made preliminary submissions in the case.
“The other side has been given some time to respond to those submissions. They have to file them by September 26 and then the court will hear it on October 11,” they said.
Chief Town Planner Mark Cummins did not attend the chamber proceedings. However, Chief Planning Assistant Jerome Walcott and Senior Town Planner Rudy Headley were present.
The Government department is represented by Senior Crown Crown Counsel Allison Burke and Crown Counsel Gayl Scott.
A case in the Magistrate’s Court, in which Rock Hard Cement is accused of failure to comply with the Town and Country Planning notice to stop construction of its cement storage facility at Spring Garden, is on hold pending the outcome of the High Court matter.
