Castries, Saint Lucia- The Government of Saint Lucia and the Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT) have agreed to hold consultations regarding conservation of the buildings which comprise the former Royal Gaol located at Bridge Street, Castries.
The site of the former Royal Gaol has been earmarked for the construction of a new Police Headquarters as well as a structure to house the Criminal Courts. The former Royal Gaol was abandoned in 2003 when all prisoners were transferred to the Bordelais Correctional Facility. The SLNT obtained an injunction restraining the demolition of the former Royal Gaol on the grounds that the buildings were of historical significance.
