An application has been submitted to the Planning and Development Department to erect a new Bulk Storage and Handling Facility at the Mighty Grynner Highway, St. Michael:

The Facility will support the import, export and storage of bulk commodities including but not limited to grains, feeds, oils, gases, lumber, steel and construction aggregates, through the Port of Bridgetown. It is a critical national priority as local sand quarries have reached their limit. It is envisaged that this facility would comprise the following:

  • 660m of new deep water berth (12.5m draught);
  • Protection of inner harbour from large waves especially from the north;
  • Creation of 4.5 hectares of new bulk storage area to be subdivided to meet the needs of its tenants;
  • Creation of 2.9 hectares of parking (280 cars) and public lands inclusive of 1.8 hectares of enhanced beachfront;
  • Mitigation of traffic congestion by installation of a strategically placed round-a-bout and pedestrian overpass

The application file can be viewed online at the Department’s website at  or at the Department in the Warrens Office Complex, Warrens, St. Michael. Any person wishing to object to the application should do so no less than 14 clear days after the date on which the information is first published on the website.
