Pine residents still waiting on promised title deeds

Barbados Labour Party (BLP) caretaker for St Michael South East, Santia Bradshaw, has accused the Freundel Stuart administration of failing to deliver on promises made to residents during the 2013 general election campaign.

During a walk-through of the community of Golden Rock, Pine, St Michael on Saturday, Bradshaw said residents of the constituency were being treated like second-class citizens.

She pointed to what she described as a failure by the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) to deliver homes to residents, a pile up of garbage and derelict vehicles in the community and overgrown bushes in the area.

“Just before the last election, the current government came to Parliament and passed a legislation which. . .led the electorate to believe that the persons living in the Terrace units will yet again be able to…own their homes, own a piece of the rock,” Bradshaw said.

“None of the people in this area and across the Pinelands housing area, which is the largest housing area in the country, have actually been able to get any of the title deeds that have been promised by this administration.”

Bradshaw, who was accompanied by party leader Mia Mottley and fellow BLP members Kris Humphrey, Jeffery Bostic, John King and Arthur Holder, said there was also a persistent sewage problem in the area.

“You have businesses affected because the sewage is running into the road. The problem is not just on the south coast, the problem is in the inner communities such as the Pinelands community as well, where the wells have not been cleaned on a regular basis,” she said.

“Businesses cannot function in a community where you have a situation where people are driving through, they want to stop for some food, to get something to eat but they are having this awful smell that is meeting them,” Bradshaw added. (KK)

    I hope the BLP don’t revoke the houses from the people and make them pay rent. You know what one party does the other does undo. This is a long time and should have been sorted every since. Some of these other issues the community can do themselves.

    I just love the way these politicians operate, for years they have been pointing out each other flaws and when they hold the reins of so called power it’s the same DOO DOO over and over again. It is time to see what alternative parties are offering especially those who have slates with fewer politicians as we are tired of warm over soup.

    Is this sitting member of parliament an attorney at law? or could she not investigate the reasons why? you don’t just give title deeds willy nilly. I suggest Santia and her team go to NHC or whoever and demand the reasons for the delays, then come to the public, i suspect they are some legal wranglings going on in this case

    Lester. Either you’re dumb or stupid or more than likely both. It is a political matter not based on legal follow up. But Silly, If you want to get legal then it is an electoral promise which in itself, a contract or a bond. Santia Bradshaw is a university qualified graduate, a sitting member of the second l oldest parliament in the western hemisphere. What and Who are you LESS …ter? And exacgtly what is Peter Tannis doing for those people?

      no peter i am neither dumb or stupid as you supposed i am aware of the history of parliament and the legal bindings of a manifesto and i also see i have ruffled your political feathers nevetheless the legal process of passing on title deeds is what i was trying to explain they are are certain criteria to be met before title deeds are transferred i guess your BRILLIANT MIND can’t understand this, and oh btw you did not mentioned if santia was an attorney at law or no
