The Saint Lucia National Trust notes that there has been much public debate over the media regarding the proposed Freedom Bay Development. Criticisms have also been leveled against the Trust about our perceived silence on the matter. However, the Council in its wisdom decided not to make a public statement hastily until a thorough research of the issues surrounding the development was completed. These included inter alia, (a) a review and analyses of the various decisions of the World Heritage Committee, the Hyder Report of 2008, and the Environmental Impact Assessment that was completed a few years ago; and (b) discussions with senior Government representatives and the developer.
