President's address
by Erin Moran

As an organization in its formative stages, I would say that this past year has been the most exciting one yet and I feel it is just the tip of the iceberg. First and foremost, we have revamped and expanded our executive and management committee to strengthen the depth and expertise of Greenrock.


An environmental group has given a cautious welcome to the news that a luxury hotel planned for Southlands may now be built at Morgan's Point.

Former Premier Alex Scott revealed last month that the owners of Southlands were in talks with Government about a land swap which would see them hand over their 37-acre site in Warwick in exchange for land on the deserted Morgan's Point peninsula in Southampton.

Environmental campaigners say refusal of planning permission for a wind turbine at a Grade Two-listed house is an example of "double speak" by Government.

Greenrock and the Bermuda Environmental and Sustainability Taskforce (BEST) both criticised the Department of the Environment yesterday for lack of consistency in policy.

They said the refusal of an appeal for the micro-wind turbine due to its "visual impact" was at odds with a decision earlier this year to delist the Grade One-listed building, the 'Queen of the East', leaving the 18th century building vulnerable to development.

Campaigners for sustainable development have welcomed a trial by Belco into domestic wind and solar power but say they should be included in the process.
