Illegal construction continues in broad daylight despite “Stop Work Orders”

 

Above: despite several issuances of “Stop Work Orders” by local government, illegal construction continues in the shanty town of the Mudd. It is unknown if the homes being built meet safety and environmental standards because they are progressing without the inspections every Bahamian is required by law to have.

Despite “Stop Work Orders” being issued, illegal construction continues to progress in the Shanty Village known as the Mudd.

Several houses have been issued Stop Work Orders in the past few months; however, the notices are ignored and work continues.

This work continues despite the apparent willingness from Central Government to tear down homes illegally built which don’t meet basic environmental standards.

The unhindered progress of the blatant and illegal construction has many in the community wondering if the government is powerless to enforce these laws.
