30-years visitor and landowner has point-of-view on land restrictive covenants

30-years visitor and landowner has point-of-view on land restrictive covenants

Message to Governor, Premier, Montserrat Reporter etc.

I have visited Montserrat every year since 1987, except 1997, and have owned property in Olveston since 1989, and for me, the main challenge for tourism in Montserrat is still the residential villas which Montserratians have always had good experience to manage.

Montserrat will never be competitive with the neighbouring islands for the tourism industry because they do not have the same infrastructures, beaches, etc.

To allow restrictive covenants to be broken or the non-respect of the island’s rules regarding special residential areas means degradation of these areas and speeds the snow birds to leave. Lands in the residential areas are more expensive than the normal lands in the island because of the protective restrictive  covenants.

I personally think that the Montserrat Government should think very carefully about this, otherwise the attraction of the island (the residential properties which are very lucrative for Montserrat and provide a lot of employment and commerce) will be adversely affected.

This is my point of view!
