A plea for incentives

Dear Editor,

With every passing moment of the day, people cry out for their rights. They cry for justice and help and yet from those cry comes no help unless it reaches a chronic state.

Reading the papers and watching the news, the entertainment industry is bawling out to the Government and parish councils for freedom of time and space. The Government, because of the loudness of sound systems and dancehall operators, eagerly replied without placing a plan before the councils and citizens of the country.

What is urgently needed is the zoning of areas and licensing of premises that can accommodate dancers/ravers.

Areas of mixed communities must state the type of sessions, size and the number of music boxes to be used.

Instead of using Hope Gardens for these big events, open spaces at Bournemouth and Portmore bordering Caymanas should be developed.

The Government should consider granting incentives to local developers who can transform such lands to accommodate events.

Councillor Lee Clarke

Former Mayor, KSAMC
