The draft Bermuda Plan 2018 has been unveiled for public consultation the Minister of Home Affairs announced today.

Walter Roban said the document included ideas for neighbourhood improvement — which “may include new recreational areas and community facilities”.

He added the plan also called for improved sidewalks along routes to schools and “more farmers' markets that we hope will sell more healthy food”.

The plan, which is open for public consultation until March 15 next year, also included strategies to protect agricultural areas, sensitive habitats and for the designation of new areas of conservation.

Mr Roban said another branch of the plan will cover “Bermuda's unique cultural heritage”, as well as “issues of climate change, and the need to incorporate sustainable design principles”.
