PM Dickon Mitchell moving to ban sale of Crown Lands around Grand Anse beach

In a most defining statement, Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell has announced that his one-year old National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration will pass legislation in Parliament to ban the sale of Crown Lands on the world famous Grand Anse beach.

The 45-year old Grenadian leader outlined his government’s position on the issue against the backdrop of the longstanding issue between the owner of the Radisson Grand Beach Resort Issa Nicholas and International Grand prix racer Lewis Hamilton for control of the property occupying a section of the Grand Anse beach.

The 2003-08 New National Party (NNP) government of Dr. Keith Mitchell had sold the government land on the beach occupied by Nicholas to Hamilton in exchange for using his name in helping to promote Grenada as a tourist destination among other promotional things.

The deal called for the Hamilton Group to negotiate the sale of the hotel from the Trinidad business tycoon in order to take possession and to develop the hotel property into a world class facility.
