Removal of Derelict & Disabled Vehicles Urged

The Public Lands Inspectorate urges all unauthorised vehicle mechanics who ply their trade on crown lands in Webb Road, Rock Hole Road, and Liberty Lane to remove all derelict and disabled vehicles from these locations no later than Thursday, 3 December 2020. Failure to comply will result in the disposal of these vehicles at the George Town Landfill.

"The presence of these vehicles defaces these communities, limits residents' safety and security, and creates environmental concerns with the breeding of rats and mosquitoes," states Chief Inspector, Winsome Prendergast.

“The Inspectorate has enlisted the support of the Environmental Task Force, of which we are a member, to ensure the proper use of these public lands," she continued. "I implore members of the public to refrain from conducting unlawful commercial activities on crown lands, but to instead, play your part to help preserve our natural environment."

The Environmental Task Force comprises of representatives from the Public Lands Inspectorate, the Department of Environmental Health, Department of Environment, National Roads Authority, Public Works Department and the Cayman Islands Department of Commerce and Investment.

Under the Cayman Islands Public Lands Law (2020 Revision), vendors who wish to carry out commercial activity on public land must submit an application or tender document to the Public Lands Commission for a vendor's permit in respect to each location where the commercial activity will take place.

For more information on the use of public lands, contact Chief Inspector, Public Lands Inspectorate, Winsome Prendergast by telephone at 244-2452 or by email at plc@gov.ky.
