I do not post on here very often because my property is near Placencia, but I read with interest, that some property owners are limiting access to the beach north of the split? What is the story there?

Lack of enforcement and general impotence in government.

Caye Caulker residents complain of limited access to beach

Harrison Cadle

So while the extraction of rosewood is an issue in the south, residents of Caye Caulker are complaining that owners of beachfront property are obstructing sections of the seashore prohibiting pedestrians to access other parts of the island. Harrison Cadle, who has owned a parcel of land on the northern end of Caye Caulker for the past seventeen years, complains that a recent development on that side of the Split is blocking public access along the beach. According to Cadle, despite having brought the issue to the attention of the village council, nothing has been done to enforce the sixty feet rule which is the law that applies to beachfront property. Cadle is now appealing to area representative Manuel Heredia Jr. to intervene and provide residents with proper access to the other side of the island.

Harrison Cadle, Caye Caulker Resident

“We have the beach in Caye Caulker for instance right, you on the beach and you go and dock your boat [and] there are pegs in the water you know. There are pegs in the water and you can’t [pass nearby], public access is not there anymore. It’s all people’s properties, I mean I want to know where we can buy some [beachfront] property. I would like for sure to find out where we can buy beach because the law says that we’re suppose to respect the beach and the beach is for the public, you know. I see pegs in the water and it worries me because in the future when the north side is developing where are we going to be walking? We’re going to be walking in the water, you know. So I wish the government is listening or if someone’s out there listening to see this problem to come and check it out. I mean they are granting people property for the beach, I mean it’s unfair what’s going on. We have a law that says that we are suppose to respect the beach and we’re not doing it. People are buying the beach so I want to know if they can sell me piece because I have a piece of property there and I would like to put a bridge. There is no access to go across the Split. I have my land for the past seventeen years and I haven’t sold my land. A lot of people had property and they sold their property because they don’t have no access to go across. We need access to go across the Split, you know. So I’m appealing to the government or Mr. Heredia if he’s hearing to please come and help us. We need a little assistance you know.”

i have some people in Placencia really interested in this. Considering the level of development on the peninesula, if someone tried to do that there, it could get real ugly, real quick
