Meeting over Shelly Bay plans
Plans for a small concession area in Shelly Bay Park will be unveiled at a meeting this evening.
The Ministry of Public Works will also present plans for access for seniors and the disabled at the beach at the event, to be held at Francis Patton Primary School.
A ministry spokeswoman said: “The ministry is keen to ensure that any proposed additions or enhancements to the Shelly Bay Park area receive public input.”
Tonight’s meeting will be held in the school’s gymnasium with a start time of 6.30pm.
A Bermuda Tourism Authority plan to install concession stands at Shelly Bay Beach has sparked opposition from some residents near the popular Hamilton Parish attraction.
A group of residents staged a protest at the BTA bid to use shipping containers to house temporary concessions by the North Shore beach as part of its plan to boost the beach economy.
The residents proposed an alternative, which included improved beach access for the elderly and the disabled.
The pressure group also requested improved restrooms for the park and said they would not oppose a lunch wagon.
