Forum Fishing Village
In January 2014, the Forum Hotel was sold to a group of private investors - Portmore Marina Development Limited. As a condition of the sale, the UDC was obligated to clear the Forum beach of all occupants. The UDC therefore had to remove the illegal occupants who were operating there. They subsequently issued the residents Notices to Quit the beach.
However, the UDC was concerned about the fate of the fishermen and commercial interests. Inaddition, they saw this as an opportunity to continue the business relationships these occupants had with their customers and so decided, in consultation with the UDC Board, to construct at new fishing location at a suitable site. We searched and found this location - Sector M - was a good site to have a fishing village. This site was also the agreed location by the occupants of the beach as discussed at a meeting held with UDC in June 2014.
