Senate: Tucker’s Point concessions approved

Draft hotel concessions for the Tucker's Point Hotel and Resort were approved in the Senate yesterday.

The Bill aims to improve the tourism product at the hotel while providing opportunities for Bermudian workers. Michael Fahy, the new Minister of Tourism, Transport and Municipalities, outlined a number of construction and renovation projects lined up for the resort.

These include a $6 million renovation at The Point restaurant and enhancements to the pool, beach club and marina. He said the $15.8 million concessions over five years were necessary to sustain Bermuda's tourism product while “preparing the asset for long-term success”.

Independent senator Joan Dillas Wright said she welcomed the move but hoped that the Bermuda Government would follow through with its commitment to train and hire Bermudians. One Bermuda Alliance senator Georgia Marshall replied: “The OBA has been committed since day dot to improving work for Bermudians.

“It is up to Bermudians who are qualified to make the applications. Be proactive. There are jobs available.”
