House: Record business sales in Dockyard

Dockyard now boasts 90 per cent occupancy of its buildings, and saw a “record” 20 per cent surge in business sales this April over the previous month.

Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the Minister of Public Works, told the House of Assembly on Friday he was sharing “positive and factual information” from the West End.

He said there were “very few” of the historic former military base's derelict buildings that had not been upgraded.

Colonel Burch added: “In fact, the only remaining area within the North Basin is the Victualling Yard.”

He said Wedco's latest cost cutting project, a solar energy system that would save $25,000 a month in energy costs, had gone partially online.

The final connection to power the West End's waste water treatment plan was expected to be completed in the next 30 days, he added.
