“This would be a very tasteful and appropriately-sized low density expansion project, that will bring significant economic activity in the area where it is located just close to St. Paul’s village,” said Minister of State with responsibility for Tourism, the Hon. Richard “Ricky” Skerritt, who added that the project proposal was now before the Cabinet.
He said this project, which is close to the “Kittitian Heights” development
“fits nicely into the mix of tourism products that we have in St. Kitts and
Nevis and will be of a high quality standard.”
Minister Skerritt gave no further details.
