Occupants to vacate 9 Beaches

Occupants are to be given two months to vacate the former 9 Beaches property after the Bermuda Land Development Company confirmed that it was applying for a court order.

This follows the threat a fortnight ago from Francis Mussenden, the BLDC chief executive officer, that IRC Sandys Ltd had run out of time.

“Although the Supreme Court awarded BLDC the writ of possession against IRC Sandys Ltd in December of last year, the BLDC will give all remaining occupants an additional two months' notice to vacate the property once the order for vacant possession is granted by the Supreme Court,” he said at the time.

“IRC Sandys has sublet the property without the prior consent, authorisation or knowledge of BLDC. However, we believe that this is a fair amount of notice for the occupants.

“BLDC has exhausted all other options and is disappointed that we have had to resort to this, but we have been left with no other choice.”

The deteriorating development at Daniel's Head in Sandys was leased to IRC Sandys six years ago, with plans for an $80 million revamp.

However, MPs heard in February from Craig Cannonier, the Minister of Public Works, that BLDC was instead owed $2.283 million.

It was originally hoped for work at 9 Beaches to break ground late in 2011, but the project persistently struggled to secure financing.

The eco-friendly resort shut down in 2010.
