    Report indicates over 1,000 homes in Abaco shanty towns

    As a result of findings in the Department of Environmental Health Services (DEHS) report on Shanty Towns, Environment and Housing Minister Kenred Dorsett said on July 4 that they will move forward with the prosecution of land-owners. The report noted an emerging trend in shantytowns of the increasing number of Bahamians or people who claim to be Bahamian, who live in or frequent these towns. According to the report, there are at least 15 shantytowns in New Providence and numerous more in the family islands.
