Par-la-Ville site lease approved

Plans to build a hotel at Hamilton's Par-la-Ville site, which were delayed after Government enacted laws subjecting the Corporation's agreement to Parliamentary approval, have been passed by the House of Assembly.

Junior Home Affairs Minister Sylvan Richards introduced the deed of variation between the Corporation of Hamilton and the local company Par-la-Ville Hotel and Residences, telling MPs the deed “supplements the agreement between the two sides, dated April 11, 2012, and then approved by the House on December 11, 2013”.

The deed resets milestone dates, such as the financial approval period, which were subjected to “unforeseen impediments and delays that were not due to the fault of the parties”, Shadow Home Affairs Minister Walter Roban noted.

Although the Opposition has decried Government's move to bring Corporation agreements before the legislature, Mr Roban said the Progressive Labour Party wouldn't argue that point on this occasion.

The new deed resets milestone dates to 2016.

“We on this side have no objections,” Mr Roban said. “We wish to see this move forward as efficiently as possible.”
