Public opinion sought over airport plans

Members of the public are invited to share their views on the L.F. Wade International Airport redevelopment.

The three meetings will seek feedback on the issues that need to be considered in the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment.

Taking place from February 2 to 4, the consultation events will be held at Clearwater Middle School in St David's on the Tuesday (from 6.30pm), Pennos Wharf cruise ship terminal in St George's on the Wednesday (from 6.30pm) and the Anglican Cathedral Hall in Hamilton on the Thursday (from 5.30pm).

The response will help contribute to the scoping study, which will be undertaken by LAS International Consulting (LAS) and Bermuda Environmental Consulting as part of the $249 million project.

Graeme Smith, technical manager of LAS, said: “We encourage anyone who wishes to provide feedback from a building, environmental, social or economic perspective.

“We will use this information to assess the impacts and benefits of the proposed redevelopment to enable a balanced decision-making process.”
