Bahamas: DEMOLITION BEGINS: Govt begins removing structures in The Farm; issues “final warning”

ABACO, BAHAMAS — Forty-five incomplete and unoccupied structures in the shantytown known as The Farm on Abaco were demolished yesterday, making good on Minister of Public Works Desmond Bannister’s promise of resolute action in the area to remove those homes.

Heavy-duty equipment tore the structures down as some residents of the area watched from a distance.

The ministry said phase two of the operation will continue today.

It said: “The government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas remains firm in its resolve to ensure that the health hazards and hazardous conditions that unregulated communities foster are dealt with decisively and effectively.”
