Planning Division holds consultation on developmental issues in Roseau
The main findings and recommendations of two studies; the Roseau Development Strategy and Action plan 2020 and the Roseau Road Reinstatement Feasibility/ Strategy Study; prepared by Baptiste and Associates Ltd was presented to various stakeholders when the Physical Planning Division held a follow-up consultation on development issues in Roseau, at the Public Service Training Center on Wednesday, February 16th, 2011.
Minister of Environment, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Fisheries Honourable Dr. Kenneth Darroux described the initiative which brought together several stakeholders who are involved in the development of the city of Roseau, as very timely.
Dr. Darroux says the plan should not be thought of as an end but rather as a framework for achieving the goal of sustainable development for the city of Roseau.
He says this integrated approach to urban planning requires significant changes in behavior at all levels and most significantly the involvement of the local community and different interest groups.
