“The Town and Country Planning Act Cap. 240 came into operation in 1965 to facilitate the orderly and progressive development of land in both the urban and rural areas of Barbados. This Act was enacted some twelve (12) years after the establishment of the Town and Country Planning Act in Britain in 1947. Since Barbados was a former British colony, its Act was mirrored after the Planning Act in Britain. The Town and Country Planning Act Cap. 240 as it stands today is therefore not aligned or in harmony with Barbados’ current planning and land use realities.

As such, the Government of Barbados is now reviewing the Act with the aim of developing a modernized legal framework and planning system. We therefore wish to engage you - the people of Barbados - in the development of this new planning legislation and system. Please download the Green Paper and share your comments and feedback below. We look forward to hearing from you on this important aspect of our country’s growth development.”

This Act is not a mirror of the Planning Act in Britain. This is a clear Abuse of Power by The Land Surveyors, The attorneys, The Building Contractors and Government of Barbados.. Next time this group of criminals find someone, another white British man that they want to give land to, make sure they give the white man land that they own. Let him colonize their yard. Take him home to where they live. Make that part of the new law.

Land fraud, in the early days, when the British were in charge, Land fraud was easy, after seven years on someone's property, or land, a land thief could apply for and get ownership of people's land. They still intend to continue this, Make stealing land a crime. Until this is done, land fraud will continue in Barbados.
