Minister of Public Works, the Hon. Alfred Sears spoke in the House of Assembly on Monday about the reconvening of Shanty Town Action Task Force.

He said, “in a very short period of time we will be meeting and outlining to the Bahamian public a road map to address the irregular, unpermitted structures not only in the shanty towns but also downtown Nassau. Buildings which are not historically protected as historic buildings will also be served with notices, as some of them are being served as I speak. So this will not just be against any particular socio-economic group.”
